Shaftesbury Man Praises Firefighters Who Saved His Bell Street Home

What goes through your mind when you discover that your house is on fire? Rob Neely tells Alfred that he was ‘in a total panic’ when he saw the flames shoot down his stairs on Sunday evening.

In our Alfred interview, Rob shares his praise for the fast and professional response by a fire crew from Shaftesbury and their colleagues across Dorset and Wiltshire. And Rob expresses his gratitude to his kind neighbours.
