Firefighters were called to a fire at an elderly woman’s flat in Slough last night.
The blaze started at a ground floor property in Northampton Place after an extractor fan caught alight.
It fell onto a toilet seat below and melted all the plastic, creating a thick black smoke.
Crews from Slough, Windsor and Maidenhead were called to the scene at midnight.
When they arrived, the 90-year-old occupant had managed to get herself outside.
Crews managed to extinguish the bathroom fire with paramedics treating the pensioner for smoke inhalation.
