UP ON THE ROOF
Firefighters extinguished a fire involving the roof space of a building in Bootle.
Our Service was called at 8.07pm on Monday, June 8, to Stanley Road.
Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus tackled the blaze and, by 8.52pm, firefighters had contained the fire to the roof space and first floor of a property.
Four fire appliances, an aerial platform, which has a platform at the end of an extendable arm to put water onto fires from above roof height, and the Command Support Unit attended the scene at the height of the fire.
A high pressure hose was in use carrying out damping down operations on the first floor and roof space by 10.10pm. Firefighters had completed damping down operations by 11pm.
Station Manager Chris Head said: “Firefighters worked hard at the scene to contain the fire to a roof space and first floor of a property. Crews worked very quickly to prevent the fire from spreading.
“This was a severe fire in a roof space that had the potential to spread to other properties and the row of shops. We needed firefighters on either side of the roof space as well as a team tackling the fire directly.”
There were no reports of any injuries.
Firefighters also removed the roof covering of tiles to make sure there was no further fire spread and that the fire was extinguished.
Fire appliances from Kirkdale, Crosby, Aintree and Croxteth attended the call-out along with the aerial appliance from Liverpool.
Sticky Situation
Firefighters rescued a man who was stuck in mud on the beach at New Brighton.
Our Service was called out to the beach near Dalmorton Road at around 11am on Sunday, June 7.
Firefighters wearing water rescue kit rescued a 56- year-old man from the mud and he was given a precautionary check at the scene by paramedics.
Station Manager Andy Groom said: "The man was up to his knees in mud when Merseyside Fire & Rescue Service was called out.
"Three firefighters wearing water rescue kit used a section of ladder and a salvage sheet to bring the man to safety.
"We would urge people to take extra care on the beach. People are advised to be aware that there may be mud in sections of the beach and there is a danger they could become trapped."
Two fire appliances from Wallasey and Upton community fire stations were called out. The MF&RS Marine Rescue Unit, Coastguard and RNLI were also called out. Firefighters were at the scene until around 12.10pm.
