Synopsis

Brief Synopsis

The Glasgow Fire Service were called to a fire at 141 Deanston Drive, Shawlands, Glasgow. The fire started within a top floor flat.

Station Officer (StnO) Mathieson was engaged in fighting the fire in a top floor flat when the strenuous conditions caused him to collapse. Firemen with oxygen equipment attempted to revive him, but he died before the ambulance arrived (SFRS circa. 2016).

The blaze completely destroyed the flat and badly damaged the roof of the building. Seven families were temporarily evacuated from their homes (SFRS circa. 2016).
