Crews have spent the evening battling a house fire in Saltash.

Firefighters from the town and Plymouth were called to the blaze on Alamein Road on Thursday.

Teams wearing breathing kit used hoses to douse the flames, after it broke out in a bedroom just after 6pm.

They had to use pressure ventilation to clear the smoke but say no-one was hurt and everyone was able to return home.

A spokesperson from Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service said: "Two appliances from Saltash Community Fire Station with the assistance of one appliance from Camels Head Fire Station, Plymouth attended a fire in an upstairs bedroom.

The property was a two storey end terrace and crews used two sets of breathing apparatus, one hosereel to extinguish the fire and used positive pressure ventilation to clear the smoke from the bedroom.

"The occupants were unharmed and returned to premise".
