Firefighters rescued a man from a smoke-logged flat and put out a kitchen fire early this morning (Friday 4 March).

The man was treated with oxygen at the scene, having breathed in smoke, before being taken by ambulance to the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Kemp Town.

The fire was reported shortly after 5am at Marlow Court, in Park Crescent Place, Brighton, after an alarm went off. The block was evacuated.

East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service said: “One man was led to safety by firefighters and firefighters used oxygen at the incident to treat the casualty. Paramedics attended.

“Following a fire investigation the cause was found to be accidental.”

Yesterday lunchtime (Thursday 3 March) they were called to South Woodlands, just off London Road, at Patcham, to a small deliberate kitchen fire.

The fire and service said that the fire was out when crews arrived and added: “Everyone in the property was accounted for.”

Water caused a ceiling to collapse and flooded the electrics at the Meridian Centre, in Peacehaven, yesterday.

Fire crews were called out at about 4pm and isolated the water and electricity and water supply.
