The Fire Service conducted a thermal scanning of neighbouring properties and left the incident at 01:09am.
The fire service have advised that regardless of the size of the fire, call 999.
“We have special kit and equipment that keeps us safe when fighting a fire – never try to fight the fire yourselves. As well as the likelihood of being badly burned, the smoke and fire gasses given off can be incredibly harmful to your lungs when inhaled, leading to unconsciousness and therefore leaving you unable to escape the fire.”
