A HOME in Newtown saw fire services having to extinguish a blaze two days in a row last week.

The service has now updated a statement given to The Chronicle after a second fire was reported at the same property the next day.

The original fire happened at 2.50pm on Friday, June 26, when Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS) received reports about a property on Liverpool Road.

RBFRS crews from Wokingham Road, Caversham Road, Dee Road, Ascot, Whitley Wood and two additional officers were sent to the scene, together with a support vehicle from Maidenhead.

Plumes of smoke could be seen billowing through the street in Newtown.

A video shared on a local Facebook group showed a home consumed by smoke as concerned neighbours watched.

The footage also showed a cordon around the house, with a fire engine outside.

Upon arrival, crews found that one person had been rescued from the property, who was placed in the care of South Central Ambulance Service.

Crews were on the scene for about three hours and 20 minutes.

The following day, another report of a fire was made to the same address.

A spokesman from RBFRS said: "At 3.27am on Saturday, June 27, we received a further report of a fire at the same property.

"Crews from Wokingham Road, Caversham Road and Dee Road were sent to the scene, together with two additional officers.

"Two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus extinguished the fire using one hose reel.

"They were on the scene for two hours and 50 minutes, before returning for a re-inspection."

The cause of both fires has not yet been revealed.
