Two people were treated for smoke inhalation after a house fire in Leverington on Sunday.

At 10.50pm, two crews from Wisbech were called to a house fire in Leafere Way after a neighbour saw smoke coming from a kitchen window and dialled 999.

A fire had broken out involving the cooker in the kitchen, which was caused accidentally by one of the inhabitants.

The home’s two occupants, a man and a woman in their 30s, were helped from the property by firefighters and given oxygen.

Two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus extinguished the fire and crews returned to their stations by 12.05am.
