A WOMAN was rescued from a flat following a fire in Westcliff yesterday evening.
The woman was suffering from smoke inhalation when she was led to safety by fire fighters from an address on Hainault Avenue. Crews administered oxygen therapy to the woman at the scene.
Two crews from Southend and Leigh were called just after 4pm, and the fire was extinguished by 4.42pm.
The police and fire service will carry out an investigation to establish the cause.
It’s believed that the flat on Hainault Avenue is the same address fire crews attended in the early hours of Friday morning for a similar incident.
