[ALBERTON] Man dies following house fire

An 83-year-old man has died from his injuries following a house fire in a complex in SaintAubyn Street, New Redruth, Alberton earlier today.

ER24 paramedics were on the scene at 11:45 this morning. The fire had by this time mostly been extinguished by neighbours. The man was found inside the house, in a critical condition, having suffered third degree burns to his whole body. He was still talking to the paramedics while they removed him from the house and treated him with Advanced Life Support interventions.

The patient was then transported to a private hospital in Alberton for further emergency treatment where he did however succumb to his injuries.

The circumstances surrounding the incident are unknown to ER24, however the local Fire Department was also on scene for further investigations.
