Home damaged in morning blaze

Firefighters were called to a house in Southampton on Saturday morning to tackle a blaze at a two-storey home.

The fire broke out at the Middle Road property, close to Five Star Island, at about 6.15am.

A Fire Service spokeswoman, Sergeant Russann Francis, said: “The Fire Service responded to the incident with two fire appliances staffed with eight firefighters to find the fire confined to an area on the upper level.”

Sergeant Shannon Caisey, who was one of the first to arrive at the scene, said: “Upon the arrival of the Fire Service, on trying to locate the residence there was faint smoke seen from the chimney.

“Two firefighters dressed in breathing apparatus and equipped with a 1½inch hose line made entry into the residence and began to extinguish the fire.

“Firefighters confirmed that all persons were out of the home prior to entering the premises to extinguish the flames.”

The dwelling sustained moderate heat damage to the upper level and extensive smoke damage throughout.

The cause of the fire was being investigated.
