Thankfully no one is believed to have been injured in the blaze, according to a local residents who provided these photos.

He said all occupants were reported to be safe but the house had been 'gutted'.

He told how a friend had seen a woman throwing a burning object out of the window, possibly a curtain.

"He called the fire brigade but he thought the fire would probably be out by the time they arrived," said the resident, who asked not to be named.
