The fire service were called to the house in Woodhill Road, Collingham, at around 7am this morning.

A five-year-old boy and 34-year-old man are in hospital with serious injuries, while a 53-year-old woman was also rescued.

They're all believed to be from the same family.

Area Chief Constable Rich Stapleford said the tragedy would hit the village hard.

Collingham is a very close knit community and this includes some of the fire crews who responded. I know this news will hit the village very hard indeed.

I speak on behalf of all the emergency services who were in attendance when I say our thoughts are with the victims, their families, friends and the community of Collingham at this difficult time.

– Area Chief Constable Rich Stapleford, Nottinghamshire Police

A joint fire and police investigation is taking place to establish a cause.

Anyone with information about the house fire should call Nottinghamshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 189 of 15 December 2018.
