A fire, which raced through a terraced home in Birmingham in Springfield, has led to the death of a female, with five other persons sustaining wounds. The Birmingham home fire has sent a 16-year-old girl to the hospital as she experienced 70% burns to her body. A 26-year-old woman is also in a grave medical condition because of the Springfield house fire after experiencing 50% burns to her arms, legs and back. Another female, who fled the Springfield house blaze by reportedly jumping from a window, endured pelvic, neck, shoulder and leg injuries. Emergency services were summoned to the site in Cateswell Road, Springfield, at around 5 am on Wednesday where a woman was declared deceased at the scene.

As per a spokeswoman for West Midlands Ambulance Services, four ambulances were transported to the site of the Birmingham home blaze with paramedical personnel, a trauma physician and a hazardous response squad.
