Three brave police officers have rescued a woman from a burning house.

Police Officers were called to an incident at a property in Severn Road, Class In Swansea following reports of a house fire at 4.30pm on Saturday 5th April.

Police arrived to a scene of devastation and red hot heat from the house which was well ablaze,

Police entered the smoke filled property and rescued a 22-year-old woman from a bedroom.

The woman and the three officers were taken to Morriston Hospital for treatment for smoke inhalation.

The three Morriston-based officers – Sergeant Paul Rees, PC Tony Phipps and PC Joanne Williams – have been praised for their actions.

Chief Inspector Tony McAlinden of Morriston Police Station said: “The brave actions of the officers undoubtedly saved the life of this woman.

“The officers entered a smoke-filled house and rescued the woman. They even re-entered the terraced house in an effort to prevent the fire from spreading to adjoining properties before being supported by the fire service who extinguished the fire.

“This was an outstanding act of bravery by the three officers who will be commended for their actions and decision-making at the scene.”
