Patient airlifted to hospital following house fire

Blaze affected all rooms within southern property

The Isle of Man Fire and Rescue service is asking people to refrain from speculation after a patient had to be airlifted from the scene of a house fire yesterday (7 June).

Fire crews from Rushen and Malew were called out at around 1pm to reports of a structure fire in the south of the Island.

Upon arrival crews were faced with a well-developed structure fire which had affected all rooms within the property.

After quickly confirming that all occupants were out of the building crews initially tackled the blaze from outside before entering the property wearing breathing apparatus to fully extinguish the fire.
