Late afternoon on Friday 1st March 2019 we were notified of a fire at Coniston House, Hurcott Road, Kidderminster. The Emergency Services attended promptly, and the fire was contained within the flat. Sadly, there was a fatality and a man, woman and child were taken to hospital as a precaution with what was thought to be smoke inhalation.
Senior Officers of the Group were on site to support the Emergency Services, implement our emergency procedures and re-assure residents.
Under the instruction of the Senior Fire Officer, residents were allowed back in to their homes later that evening.
We would like to pass on our sincere condolences to the family of the deceased resident and thank our Officers and the Emergency Services for their prompt response.
We will be contacting all residents in the flats today to offer support and reassurance and updating our key stakeholders.
