Fire investigators have this afternoon finally been able to enter a house where a man died in a suspected gas explosion.
Crews were called to a blaze at at bungalow at Back Lane in Eye, near Peterborough, on Friday morning.
Neighbours reported smelling gas and hearing a loud bang.
But investigators were unable to access the property to confirm the cause of the fire because it was structurally unsafe.
This afternoon, the fire service said it was now safe to enter the bungalow and they hoped to determine the cause as soon as possible.
Neighbour Mark Short has described how he ran into the house next door to rescue its sleeping owner.
"It looked like her roof was on fire - it was just catching - so the first thing was to get in before anything started happening. I don't even remember what it was like inside.
"She had a walking frame but she had no shoes on and there didn't look like there was any time to start hunting for shoes so we just thought we would pick her up and carry her out.
"To get in the other house was definitely a no chance because the door was melting."
Firefighters in Cambridgeshire have shared this photograph of a fire engine blocked from driving down a road in Huntingdon because of inconsiderate parking.
The crew was not on an emergency call - meaning no lives were put at risk this time - but it hopes the worrying image will make people think more carefully about how they leave their cars.
"Luckily, they were on access checks and not a 999 call - but if it had been an emergency call it would have added another five minutes to a time-critical incident. Please think about how you park when leaving your car on the streets of Huntingdon."
The photo was taking on American Lane in the town on Friday morning.
