Deaf man rescued from fire by neighbours

A deaf man and his two pets have been rescued by neighbours from a house fire in west Belfast.

The blaze started shortly before 3am on Wednesday at the rear of the property in Glasvey Gardens in Dunmurry.

It spread to the rest of the house, which has been left extensively damaged, and the roof of an adjoining property was also damaged.

The 33-year-old man inside escaped injury when he was rescued by neighbours before emergency services arrived.

However, a police officer was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation.

A number of nearby homes had to be evacuated while fire crews dealt with the blaze.

Police are investigating the cause of the fire and have appealed to anyone who noticed any suspicious activity in the area to contact officers on 101.
