A spokesman from Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue service said: "They weren't in a very good state.

"They weren't in a very sanitary state and there were piles of stuff everywhere."

West Mercia Police asked for the organisation's help during an operation in the area with Worcestershire Trading Standards at around 12.45pm yesterday (Tuesday).

Tenants and Landlords have a duty of care to protect property its simple just an alarm is needed and if the property is owned by a Landlord then the law is Fire alams must be fitted, if a tenant leaves rubbish and obstructs doorways fire escapes routes etc then they should be warned and evicted if they do not show some responsibility.
I am assuming these properties are rented?
