These figures show a welcome reduction in loss of life due to fire during the third quarter of the year. The most serious incidents during the quarter involved a hotel and a house converted into use as flats, accounting for four and three deaths respectively. Five firemen have died through injuries received whilst fighting fires up to now this year.
