  • 10-30-2011

Four people were rescued from fires in kitchens within minutes of each other at two properties in Bournemouth.

Crews led a boy, girl and a man from a first floor flat in Poole Road, Westbourne, minutes after a man was rescued from a property in Keeble Crescent, Kinson.

All three victims were treated at the scene in Poole Road.

Dorset Fire and Rescue Service said the incidents highlight the importance of smoke detectors being fitted.
