Firefighters were called to a fire in a house this afternoon.

On arrival, crews reported that a fire was burning within the kitchen of a terraced property and the building was completely smoke logged.

Firefighters worked hard to prevent the fire from spreading throughout the home and were able to extinguish it by 3.25pm.

The kitchen has suffered fire damage but firefighters were able to limit smoke damage by using a Positive Pressure Ventilation fan to clear smoke from the premises.

The fire was caused accidentally after some paper being kept too close to a toaster ignited.
