Firefighters battle blaze at Chester city centre apartment - Chester Chronicle

So, this happened today, the guy is my next door neighbour, we live in a house with flats. The fire alarms did not go off and if it were not for the sirens I would of stayed in my place oblivious, heard them and looked in our hall to find smoke everywhere, had the grab our cats and run through it (carrying two chubby cats through fire and smoke is not fun) My poor neighbour lay outside screaming in pain, he had broken both of his ankles and it shuck me up, beyond belief. And so....I broke the diet, I am not ashamed just a little dissapointed in myself, however I am going to get straight back onto it tomorrow. Keep my poor neighbour in your thoughts and prayers and me for the next couple of days please........... :cry::wave_cry:

That's unbelievable. I'm glad you and your cats escaped. It's understandable that you broke your diet but just start again. As a lipotrim legend said don't let a bad day become a bad week!

food is not my friend!
Ohh Im glad you and your kittys got out safely, I think after a shock like that it might have been quite sensible to have something to eat as shock can lower your blood sugar levels, but don't feel bad about it, just get back on and stick at it =] xxx

OMG!! Thats terrible!! You did so well getting back into it!

Just a hint - call your fire officer at your local station - they will look into the alarms failing - residential apartment properties should have regular checks!! I know a block of apts that got their knuckles wrapped not so long ago in Liverpool!!!

keep up the good work!! think thin for summmer

I got a call from my housing officer this afternoon after making a formal complaint, they came and checked the alarms and they worked just fine and dandy, which she reiterated about 5 times. I asked why they failed to sound when the fire occurred and she said they are looking further into it. Looks like they are just trying to wiggle out of any responsibility for the effect it has had on me.....who knows? Anyways I am not going to let the issue go without a fight. Thank you again peeps for your positive wishes xxx

Get the fire safety officer at your local station to do an independant check!

Glad you and the kitties got out ok.... thats absolutely terrifying!

Gosh, that is awful. Yes, take your complaint all the way regarding the fire alarms not working. Local MP complaints, animal welfare, that sort of stuff.
