Man rescued by firefighters from massive Highbury house fire
FIGHFIGHTERS rescued a man via a ladder as they fought a massive unexplained house fire.
Six fire engines and around 30 fire officers were called to Petherton Road, Highbury, last night at around 9pm.
Crew members saved a man from the three-storey property - while another man also escaped unharmed.
The basement, first floor and a staircase in the house were damaged by fire - the blaze was under control by 11pm.
Stoke Newington Green watch manager Rob Hyde said: “Our crews worked hard to contain the fire within the property and prevent it from spreading to other homes.”
