TWO women were given oxygen by firefighters on Saturday night after a fire started in a bedroom.

Crews from Springbourne and Christchurch were called to Shelley Road East, Boscombe, at around 11.30pm.

The fire, which was in a first floor bedroom, was out when they arrived.

The two women had suffered from smoke inhalation.

A fire service spokesman said an unattended candle started the fire and that the occupants were alerted by a smoke alarm.

The spokesman reminded people to check their smoke alarms were working regularly.

Home office figures for 2008 show that there were 14,374 house fires caused by unattended candles.

THEY should be banned.
