An investigation is underway after a flat fire in Hulme, Manchester left three people in hospital on Tuesday 25th June.
The Fire Service were called to Hulme High Street at around 7.30 AM on the Tuesday morning after smoke was seen coming from the flat windows.
Three fire engines from Moss Side, Salford and Manchester Central attended the incident.
Two hose reels, four breathing apparatus, and an extractor fan was used to extinguish the blaze that was believed to have started on the fourth floor in a communal area of the building.
The cause of the blaze remains unclear, however, Greater Manchester Police are currently investigating the incident alongside Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue who believe the fire was an Arson attack.
A Fire Risk Assessment is required by law under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 and should be reviewed annually. The Fire Risk Assessment will cover an Arson prevention checklist, alongside the people at risk within the building and identifying the fire hazards on site.
