Firefighters put at risk by members of the public while fighting a blaze in Hereford
A LEADING fire officer has spoken of the ‘devastating consequences’ that could have occurred after members of the public twice disconnected a hose from a hydrant as emergency teams fought a blaze in the early hours of Sunday morning.
Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service said a hydrant was disconnected on two occasions by members of the public as fire fighters battled to put out a fire that left a first floor flat above shops in Church Street, Hereford, gutted.
West Mercia Police are investigating the incident as obstructing firefighters is an offence.
