Family saved by smoke alarms after fire destroys Nottingham home

Around 3.35am this morning (26 June 2023) we were called to a house fire in Woodthorpe in Nottingham.

Fire crews from Arnold, Carlton, Stockhill, London Road, Mansfield and Edwinstowe attended this incident.

Smoke alarms had sounded meaning that the family of four had a chance to escape without injury.

A fire is believed to have started in the kitchen of the bungalow and spread, leaving the inside of the house unrecognisable.

Area Manager Bryn Coleman said: “The scale and intensity of this fire has destroyed a family home.

“Thanks to working smoke alarms, all the family managed to escape the fire. We could have been looking at a much worse outcome if smoke alarms weren’t there.

“I want to remind everyone of the importance of testing their smoke alarm and having one on every level of their home.
