Two women escaped from a fire in a flat in Preston this evening (April 3).

Fire crews attended the scene in St Peter’s Street near UCLan at around 5.54pm.

Firefighters used breathing apparatus and hosereel jets to extinguish the fire after two women made their own way out of the property. They were cared for by paramedics.

A statement from Lancashire Fire & Rescue Service said: “Firefighters equipped with breathing apparatus and two hosereel jets extinguished a fire in a ground floor flat from which two women had made their own way out.

“The casualties were attended to by paramedics.

“The fire engines and crews attending were from Preston, Fulwood and Penwortham. The cause of the fire is to be established.

This story has been amended following a correction from Lancashire Fire & Rescue Service. An earlier statement had stated the two women were rescued by firefighters rather than making their own way out.
