Four children have been rescued from a house fire in Swindon in Wiltshire, after the blaze broke out in the early hours. Neighbours heard the smoke alarm and called for help.
Dorset and Wiltshire Fire Service said the fire started in the kitchen of a terraced house in Crombey Street.
The fire is thought to have started when cooking was left unattended.
The smoke triggered the property’s smoke alarm, allowing the five occupants to escape without injury – four children were led to safety by firefighters.
Emergency services were called to the fire just before 2am.
