A man was rescued from a flat fire in Harlington yesterday (Tuesday) evening.
The man was taken to hospital for smoke inhalation following the blaze in a first floor apartment in Boltons Lane, Hayes, just before 6pm.
Firefighters waded into the burning three-storey house with breathing apparatus to pull the man out.
Crews from Heathrow and Hayes stations attended, and took an hour to bring the flames under control.
The flat was badly damaged, and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
