Three fire engines from Bispham and Fleetwood were called out to the home in Promenade Road after the family called 999 at 12.21am.

The family had managed to get out of the terraced house safely before fire crews swiftly arrived to tackle the flames.

Two firefighters entered the home with breathing apparatus to protect them from the smoke and used a hose reel to extinguish the fire.
