A man received trauma care by ambulance staff before being taken to a major trauma hospital following a property fire in Birmingham this morning.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called by the fire service at 8.03am to reports of a fire at a property in Stratford Road, Hall Green. An ambulance, a paramedic officer, Hazardous Area Response Team (HART) paramedics and a critical care paramedic attended the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokeswoman said: “On arrival crews found a man who had reportedly jumped from the 1st floor window of the property to escape the fire. The man was assessed and found to have sustained potentially serious injuries from the fall. He received trauma care from the team of ambulance staff before being taken by land ambulance to Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham. A second person at the scene was uninjured.
