FLAMES ripped through a flat in Bewdley last night.

The severe blaze happened at a ground-floor  flat in Springhill Rise at about 10.21pm.

They spent four hours tackling the fire, which had fully developed by the time they arrived, using breathing apparatus and main jets.

Residents were safely evacuated from their flats by police and no-one was injured in the blaze.

Firefighters are now working with officers to find out the cause of the fire.

The fire crews returned to the scene this morning to reinspect of the site.

The fire was a few doors down from me. It was amazing to see how the fire
fighters worked together to contain the fire whilst they got it under control. It makes you realise just how essential they are as it could have been so much worse if it spread to the neighbouring flats.

So glad to hear that no one was hurt -possessions can be replaced but lives can't.
