Multiple crews from Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire attended a huge incident near Aylesbury which saw a house become ‘100 per cent damaged’ by a fire.

At around 3.45am on Friday, February 2, officers from Aylesbury, West Ashland, High Wycombe, Wheatley and Thame attended a property along Ford Road in Stone, as a two-story house was impacted by an inferno.

The firefighters used:

  • Three sets of breathing apparatus
  • Four main jets
  • Two hose reels
  • Two water dams
  • A positive pressure ventilation fan
  • A turntable ladder
  • A water tanker

One man was treated for minor injuries before being passed into the care of South Central Ambulance Service, whilst the electricity supply to the house, and a second building nearby, was isolated by UK Power networks.

In a brief statement on the Bucks Fire website, they said: “The house was 100 per cent damaged by fire.

“A single-story annex was around 20 per cent damaged by fire and 100 per cent damaged by smoke.”

The incident response began to be scaled back shortly before 7.30am but fire crews remained at the property during the day.

An investigation is currently underway to determine the cause of the fire.
