TWO dogs have been rescued from a house fire at a property in Boscombe this afternoon.

The pets were carried out by firefighters following the blaze at a ground floor flat in The Crescent.

Crews from Springbourne and Westbourne used one hose and two sets of breathing apparatus to tackle the flames.

A spokesperson from the Dorset Fire and Rescue Service said crews left the scene at 2.55pm.

He added: "The cause of the fire is still being investigated.

"The owner of the property was out at the time the fire began in the kitchen area."

There was smoke damage to the flat.

Perhaps the Daily Echo might care to look at the gardens at the Crescent - opposite this flat.

The devastation that was previously made is now again being ripped up - meaning the £55,000 spent is now wasted.

So instead of stopping paying greedy landlords exhorbitant sums to house those who cause the problems, in slum housing - the council is once again throwing money at yet another pointless 'starburst' scheme.

When is the council going to deal with the real cause of Boscombe's problems, and not waste more money on futile gestures ?

Totally agree with this - deal with the real problems - drugs, landlords who don't care, etc

@ Bob49 and onetimeapathetic

Stick to the story, it's about dog's being rescued from a fire not the council wasting money, Save your rants for another time.
