A woman has been dragged from a burning house in Kilkhampton.

Three police officers are being hailed heroes for braving the flames late on Wednesday night.

Two people had to be treated for breathing in smoke by paramedics. They were later treated in hospital for burns.

Three teams from Bude fire station were scrambled to fight back the flames. Crews reckon an electrical fault sparked the blaze.

Superintdent Julie Whitmarsh, Commander for East Cornwall said, “This was a fantastic job by the officers who attended the incident. This would have been an extremely frightening experience for the lady and our officers responded with great professionalism and courage carrying out their work to protect life and property.”
A dog was rescued from the property but sadly three other pets died in the blaze.
The fire is not thought to be suspicious.
