Mum and daughter rescued from fire in Agincourt Street, Newport

  • 7-9-2014

A mother and daughter have been rescued from a house fire in Newport.

Firefighters saved the pair from an upstairs window of a terraced house in Agincourt Street, Crindau.

The fire began just after 20:00 BST on Tuesday on the ground floor and the daughter raised the alarm with a 999 call.

The South Wales Fire and Rescue Service control room gave her safety advice before firefighters arrived and rescued the pair using a seven-metre ladder.

Crews from Malpas, Maindee and Duffryn tackled the fire using breathing apparatus, two hose reel jets and a safety jet.

The fire was brought under control within 20 minutes and is thought to have started accidentally.
