Man dies in hospital after being rescued from Bristol flat fire

A man has died in hospital after being rescued from a flat fire in Bristol. The man died three days after the blaze in Stockwood, police have confirmed.

Police officers, firefighters and paramedics were all called to the scene of a fire in an upstairs flat on Dutton Road on Monday, January 23 after neighbours reported a blaze. The emergency services rescued a person from the first-floor of a block of flats.

The casualty was then taken to hospital by paramedics. However, it has now been confirmed that a man in his 50s has died following the incident.

A man in his 50s was rescued by firefighters and taken to hospital, where he sadly died three days later.
