Station Manager Paul Bremble said: “ The owners were very lucky to escape, had this happened at night there would have been the potential for the fire to go unnoticed for some time.
"The owners did have working smoke detectors which would help in any fire situation. Oxfordshire County Council Fire and Rescue Service believe that the fire was caused by a fault with the electric fitting in the house”
