TWO people were treated for smoke inhalation after being rescued from a flat fire in Shepherd's Bush this morning.
Two fire engines and 10 firefighters were called to the converted house on Davisville Road with a man and a woman taken from the building with breathing apparatus and treated by ambulance crews.
Half of the ground floor flat was damaged by the blaze which broke out 4.48am and took just under an hour to get under control.
Nigel February, of Hammersmith Fire Station, said: “Working smoke alarms sounded and alerted the people to the fire. Our control staff gave residents fire survival information and we arrived quickly on the scene and rescued two people from the first floor.
“It is essential for everyone to have a working smoke alarm in their home as it can help save your life if there is a fire.”
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
