Fire crews wearing breathing apparatus rescued a man and a woman from a house fire on Trevithick Close in Feltham, yesterday evening.
The couple was led to safety by firefighters from the first floor. They were both treated for smoke inhalation by London Ambulance Service crews.
Two fire engines and 10 firefighters and officers attended the scene.
The kitchen was left party damaged by the fire, and the whole ground floor of the two storey property was damaged by the smoke.
The fire is believed to have been caused by a chip pan left unattended on the hob in the kitchen on the first floor.
A London Fire Brigade spokesperson said:
“You should never leave cooking unattended – if you have to leave the room or the house, turn the heat off.”
The Brigade was called at 1819 and the fire was under control by 1859. Fire crews from Feltham and Twickenham fire stations attended the scene.
