Fire staff to visit Kingsthorpe with safety advice after recent house fire

Fire staff carry out a Home Fire Safety Visit

Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service will be handing out safety advice to residents in Kingsthorpe on Wednesday (December 14) following a recent house fire in the area.

Crews from Moulton and The Mounts will be joined by NFRS staff members in carrying out a ‘hot strike’ on Newington Road from noon until 4pm.

It will see them knocking on doors to engage with residents and hand out leaflets, while members of the Prevention Team will be able to offer top tips to stay safe this winter.

And Fire Protection Officers will be joined by the public sector housing team at West Northamptonshire Council to talk with landlords and residents of Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs). There are a high number of such properties in the area, and the Protection Team will be on hand to offer specialist advice on the best ways to ensure HMOs are safe for residents.

The hot strike is being held following a house fire on the road on Monday December 5, which was attended by four fire engines from NFRS. The fire had started in the chimney flue and quickly spread to the roof before being extinguished by firefighters. Thankfully everyone in the house was safe and accounted for.

Residents are welcome to speak to Fire representatives during the hot strike if they have any concerns or questions following the incident.
