Firefighters tackle house blaze in Halifax Road

Firefighters were called to a house fire in Halifax Road just before 2pm this afternoon.

A crew from Slough and two crews from Maidenhead attended the fire, which was in the first floor of a two-storey house.

A total of six firefighters wearing breathing apparatus tackled the flames using two hose reels and a hydrant.

The blaze was out by 3pm and the property suffered 80 per cent fire damage to the first floor.

Nobody was hurt.

Maidenhead's station manager Paul Jones said an investigation into the cause of the fire is on-going.

He added:"I would like to remind people of the importance of having a working smoke alarm. Even if you're not in the property smoke alarms can warn your neighbours so they can dial 999 alerting the fire services at the earliest opportunity."
