Footage has emerged of the moment when a brave firefighter narrowly escaped serious injury following a blaze at a residential address.
The exact circumstances of the incident are unclear, but reports suggest the property was heavily hoarded with persons reported and that the only access was via the first floor.
Reports also suggest that the hoard loading within the property made the signs and symptoms of the fire incredibly difficult to see.
Emergency Services News understands that the fire occurred in Bracknell, Royal Berkshire, although this information has not been confirmed.
Royal Berkshire Fire & Rescue Service has been contacted for comment.
The video is a reminder of the bravery of the men and women in the fire and rescue service who risk their own lives to save the lives of others.

WE NEED YOUR HELP.Here at Emergency Services News, we aim to tell you stories that the mainstream media are not interested in reporting. Whilst the MSM love to berate and ridicule the emergency services, who is there to report on the realities of serving on the front line?
Emergency Services News is currently a loss-making entity. But our team of volunteers, all former emergency services personnel, do not do it for the money.
We do it because we are sick and tired of the mainstream media constantly trying to undermine the men and women who put their lives on the line to keep you and your family safe.
How many MSM journalists who speak ill of the emergency services have actually dared to don the uniform and risk their own lives to save the life of a complete stranger?
