FIREFIGHTERS had to rescue a man from his roof after he fled a blaze in the kitchen of his Warwick home.

Crews were called to a property on Stratford Road around 8.20am on Monday (February 22).

They found the man who had tried to escape the fire through his bedroom window on the roof.

He was helped down by firefighters before the blaze, which is understood to have started in the microwave, was fully extinguished.

The man did not suffer any injuries.
