Firefighters were alerted to a house fire this evening.
On arrival, fire crews found the inside of a terraced property was alight and smoke logged.
Firefighters were able to restrict the fire to the property's internal cavity by 9.18pm.
Crews then used thermal imaging cameras to detect remaining hotspots and prevent the fire spreading further. Several floorboards were removed in order to extinguish the fire completely.
The home has been left uninhabitable. The fire was caused by an electrical fault and has been recorded as accidental.
