House fire in Birmingham

Jordan Eggington – Wednesday 27th January 2021 – 8.50am.

Two people have been treated for potentially serious injuries after a house fire in Birmingham overnight.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called by the fire service at 11:12pm on Tuesday to a serious fire at a property in Regent Road, Handsworth. Three ambulances, three paramedic officers, the Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) and the MERIT trauma car with a doctor and critical care paramedic onboard attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “When crews arrived, they were presented with two patients who had been inside the building at the time of the fire, a man and woman.

“Although unharmed from the fire itself, the patients had both suffered potentially serious injuries from escaping the building.

“They were treated at the scene for their injuries before being taken to Queen Elizabeth Hospital in separate ambulances for further treatment.”
