Incident Number: 75368
In attendance: 2 x Harlow

Firefighters rescued three cats and two dogs from a house fire this afternoon.

Crews reported on arrival that smoke could be seen coming from the roof of the property, which measures around 10 metres by 15 metres, and that the building was heavily smoke logged.

Firefighters worked hard to extinguish the fire very quickly and were able to do so by 4.57pm.

Crews then used a positive pressure ventilation fan to clear the premises of smoke, before using a thermal imaging camera to be certain there were no remaining hotspots within the building. Firefighters then left the scene at 6.06pm.

The animals were left in the care of the RSPCA.
