Double village visit for firefighters
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.
