Five dead in Hounslow house inferno

An investigation has been launched by the police following a devastating house fire in Hounslow last night, which resulted in the death of five people. One person is still missing. The fire, which engulfed the property on West London’s Channel Close, was so intense that only one man managed to escape before the arrival of the fire brigade. He was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Firefighters later discovered five more bodies on the first floor of the house. Approximately 70 firefighters and ten fire engines were present at the scene. The cause of the fire is currently unknown, and it is believed that all five victims were from the same family.

The ground floor and first floors of the house were completely destroyed by the fire, and the roof also sustained damage. London Fire Commissioner Andy Roe expressed his condolences, stating that this was a tragic incident and that the thoughts of the London Fire Brigade are with the affected family and friends. He also mentioned that staff will be available in the local community to provide support and advice. The fire was reported at 10.26pm and was brought under control by 1.25am. Fire crews from various stations attended the scene. The cause of the fire is still being investigated.

The London Ambulance Service dispatched multiple resources, including ambulances, officers, a Hazardous Area Response Team (HART), and the London Air Ambulance, to provide medical assistance. Chief Superintendent Sean Wilson, who is responsible for policing in Hounslow, expressed his condolences to the loved ones of the victims and acknowledged the impact this incident will have on the community. He assured that his officers are working to determine the exact circumstances of the tragedy.
