Firefighters in St Helens rescued a man after he attempted to tackle a chip pan fire in his home.

Crews were called to a property on Bruce Street. near Queens Park, shortly before 10pm last Thursday (July 24).

On arrival, firefighters from St Helens and Eccleston donned breathing apparatus before tackling the flames.

Only then did they realise a man was still inside the property attempting to tackle the blaze himself.

A brigade spokesman said: “If you discover a fire, get out, stay out and call 999.”
