Sinn Féin MLA Órlaithí Flynn has praised the community after a man was rescued from a house fire in in Glasvery Gardens, west Belfast this morning.

The West Belfast MLA said:

“This could have been a tragic event but for the quick thinking of the man’s neighbours who ensured he was able to exit the house without injury.

“The property has suffered extensive damage and I have been in touch with the housing executive to see about fixing the property and getting accommodation for the man.

“I would advise people to check their smoke alarms and to make a fire escape plan.”
