Four crews were called to Drift Lane at about 8.20pm last night (May 6) after a fire broke out in a bungalow.

The fire service said 60 per cent of the building and roof were damaged by flames and it was 100 per cent damaged by heat and smoke.

Firefighters extinguished the flames using 10 breathing apparatus, four water jets, two hose reels and a covering jet.

No-one was injured and it is believed the property was empty at the time of the fire.

Crews left the scene just after midnight. They returned to this morning to carry out an investigation.

The cause of the fire is being treated as an accident.
