2 Fatalities at Serious House Fire in Maghull

ON Saturday 16 January 2016, Firefighters from Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service attended a serious house fire in Bridge Farm Drive, Maghull at around 11.15pm. The alarm was raised after a neighbour in the adjoining semi detached house discovered that their bathroom was filling up with smoke, shortly after 11pm. A Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said when firefighters arrived they put on breathing apparatus and started to put out the fire that was "well alight." Sadly, the fire claimed the lives of a man and a woman, who were rescued from the house by firefighters. Both casualties were reported to have been unconscious and not breathing at the time and paramedics had carried out CPR while a search of the property continued, for any more people. Both casualties were then taken to University Hospital Aintree by ambulance, but unfortunately it was later confirmed that they had both died. It is thought that the fire was on the 1st floor of the house and the fire service says they believe there were "no smoke alarms located within the property." The Incident Investigation Team and Merseyside Police are carrying out a joint investigation into the cause of the fire. As of yet the names of the couple are not known to us. In total 5 fire appliances attended the incident and firefighters were at the scene until around 2.50am.
