A RESIDENT in Long Itchington has spoken of his shock over a fire which ripped through a home opposite his house.
Jason Forthouse watched the blaze take hold in Leigh Crescent just before 12.30pm on Wednesday (February 16).
Firefighters in three engines raced to the scene, one of them saving a family dog from the inferno, which took hold to the rear of the property. No one was injured.
Mr Forthouse told the paper: “All credit to the firefighters, they were there so quickly and that really helped to prevent even more damage to the house. Someone had said a dog was trapped inside so it was great to see it being brought out, and not even looking affected by what he had been through.
“No one seemed clear as to what had caused the fire but investigations seem to be continuing there and thankfully no one was injured, which is the main thing.”
