Senior treated for smoke inhalation
An elderly man was taken to hospital yesterday after an apartment fire in Hamilton.
A spokesman for Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service said firefighters were called out to a blaze in a one-bedroom apartment on the city’s Dundonald Street yesterday morning.
He said: “Upon arrival, smoke was coming out of the kitchen door of the apartment.
“Firefighters entered the residence wearing breathing apparatus and quickly extinguished the blaze.”
The spokesman said the fire was confined to the kitchen, but that the entire apartment had been damaged by smoke.
The occupant, who has not been named, was treated at the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital for the effects of smoke.
The fire broke out at about 10.45am.
A call about a second fire on Paget’s Harbour Road came in as firefighters tackled the Dundonald Street blaze. The spokesman said: “Firefighters noticed smoke coming from beneath the front door of an apartment.
“The fire was confined to the living room area, but the apartment received smoke damage throughout.”
No injuries were reported. A total of 11 firefighters in two trucks attended both fires. An investigation in the cause of both fires has been launched.
