A WOMAN was hospitalised after a fire swept through an Anglesey farmhouse.

Firefighters broke from industrial action to deal with the blaze at Mynydd Ithel in Cemlyn near Cemaes Bay at 9.26pm on Saturday.

Chief Fire Officer Simon Smith said: “The occupier was able to get out of the property and has been taken to hospital suffering from smoke inhalation and shock.
“There has been substantial damage to the property and the cause of the fire is under investigation.”

A Welsh Ambulance spokesperson said an ambulance was called to the scene at 9.39pm.

She added: “We sent an emergency ambulance to the scene, and woman in her 50s with smoke inhalation was taken to Ysbyty Gwynedd for a precautionary check-up.”

The four hour strike was the sixth period of industrial action planned by the Fire Brigades Union (FBU) as a protest against UK Government pension plans.

Chief fire Officer Smith said it was “unclear” whether there would be further industrial action.

He added: “I would remind people that attention to fire safety and road safety remains of paramount importance especially over the Christmas period.”
