A Britwell resident had to be taken away by an ambulance after inhaling smoke from a fire last night.
At 11pm, firefighters were called to a first-floor flat in the Britwell Estate.
Two engines from Slough Fire Station and one from Langley attended the scene, with breathing apparatus and a hose reel. They were there for a hour.
There was smoke damage to the property and the occupant was taken away for treatment for smoke inhalation by South Central Ambulance Service.
“This highlights the importance of having a working smoke alarm and checking it regularly,” said firefighters from the Slough station.
