Have your say

A MAN needed to be rescued from an office skylight after a fire broke out.

Three fire crews from Horndean, Petersfield and Liphook were called to St Peter’s Road, Petersfield, at 3.45pm yesterday.

A fire had started in a bin shed outside the office.

This caused smoke to rise into the building.

A 25-year-old man had been in a roof office of the building and was alerted to the blaze after a smoke alarm went off.

He opened the door to find a smoke-filled corridor and instead closed the door and waited to be rescued.

Fire crews used a ladder to reach him.

No one was injured and the cause of the fire is not suspicious.
