  1. What’s the area coming to, it used to be a lovely place to live. Theres been loads of trouble round there recently. This fires just another strain on our community.
    I saw three police officers go in and save a man on the middle floor who was trapped before the fire service arrived.
    The top floor was on fire and they put this guys door in and dragged him out before his floor went up.
    Terrifying stuff it could have been my home.
