Fire­man’s fish res­cue in­jury

Midweek Sport - - FRONT PAGE -

A FIRE­MAN saved three gold­fish from a blaz­ing flat – but needed hospi­tal treat­ment when he tripped over a SHOE.

He was among 20 fire­fight­ers who tack­led the fire at a flat above shops in Kingston, south London.

The un­named fire­fighter car­ried the gold­fish to safety, but hurt him­self trip­ping over the shoe.

The fire, be­lieved to have been caused by an elec­tri­cal fault, caused se­vere dam­age but the only in­jury was the fire­fighter, who was taken to Kingston hospi­tal with an an­kle in­jury.

New Malden fire sta­tion watch man­ager Steve Pre­ston said: “We did man­age to save the gold­fish and the bowl.”
