Lift fire at Kidderminster block of flats
10:37am Tuesday 15th October 2013 in Local
FIREFIGHTERS were called to a small fire in a Kidderminster block of flats caused by a fault in the lift.
The incident happened at a block of flats in Hurcott Road at about 8pm yesterday.
A fault had caused the belt of the lift to set alight.
Four appliances attended the scene from Kidderminster, Stourport and Bewdley and an aerial platform was used from Bromsgrove.
Watch commander Len Rees from Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service said: “The flats are high risk for us because of the structure of the building and the amount of people living there.
“The flats have a stay put policy which means when we turn up to an incident, residents stay in their flats until told otherwise.
“All the procedures went well last night.”
