A family have been rescued from their burning home in Menheniot.

Fire crews used ladders to get three people to safety from an upstairs bedroom on Lower Clicker road first thing on Tuesday morning.

Teams brought in back up from Saltash, Looe and Liskeard.

A spokesperson for Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service said: "Appliances from Liskeard, Looe and Saltash attended a house fire in Menheniot.

"Three people were rescued by the fire service from an upstairs bedroom window, after becoming trapped by the fire downstairs.

"All the occupants were rescued unharmed, by firefighters using a triple extension ladder to the window.

"The fire in the property, an end of terrace two storey building, measuring approximately five metres by five metres, was extinguished using one hose reel by firefighters wearing two breathing apparatus."

Rescuers say the family were alerted to the fire by a smoke alarm.
