Care home staff praised by residents

The staff at a care home in Plymouth, Devon, U.K. have been praised by residents for their efforts and actions following the outbreak of a fire.

Nursing care providers working at the Freshfields residence in the St Budeaux area were praised by those living there following their quick thinking when the fire started.
