Service offers sympathies following fatal Oswestry fire

Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service can sadly confirm we attended a fatal fire in Oswestry yesterday (Wednesday 11 January) .

The Service was called at around 3.20pm to reports of a fire at a property in Gobowen after a resident heard the snoke alarms activating. Crews from Oswestry, Ellesmere and North Wales attended. Despite the best efforts of firefighters a man died at the scene and our thoughts are with his loved ones during his difficult time.

A fire investigation is still ongoing to determine the cause of the blaze.
