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.
