Dou­ble vil­lage visit for fire­fight­ers

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

EMER­GENCY ser­vices had to rush to a Bucks vil­lage twice in the space of eight hours at the be­gin­ning of the week to at­tend to two emer­gen­cies.

On Mon­day, two cars crashed into each other in Nar­cot Lane, Chal­font St Peter, drawing the emer­gency ser­vices to the scene at about 6.20pm.

And on Tues­day morn­ing three Bucks fire crews and one from Berk­shire were called to a bed­room fire, in Malt­mans Lane.

Two men were re­leased un­in­jured from the car col­li­sion, but crews did have to as­sist one woman from one of the cars.

An am­bu­lance ser­vice spokesman said: “We were called at 6.19pm to re­ports of a road traf­fic ac­ci­dent of two ve­hi­cles in Nar­cot Lane.

“We sent one am­bu­lance crew and one am­bu­lance of­fi­cer and a rapid re­sponse ve­hi­cle.

“There were three peo­ple as­sessed at the scene.”

They con­firmed one per­son did not suf­fer any in­juries, that one was treated at the scene but did not re­quire hos­pi­tal treat­ment and that the third per­son was taken to hos­pi­tal.

On Tues­day, the fire­fight­ers had to use two jets, two hose reels, two sets of breath­ing ap­pa­ra­tus and a turntable lad­der to put out the bed­room fire.

An am­bu­lance spokesman said: “We were called at 1.47am on June 2 to re­ports of a fire on Malt­mans Lane.

“We sent one am­bu­lance crew and one am­bu­lance of­fi­cer.

“There were two pa­tients be­lieved to be an el­derly male and el­derly fe­male.”

They con­firmed both were taken to hos­pi­tal suf­fer­ing from smoke in­hala­tion.
