Three people needed hospital treatment following a house fire in Blackpool this evening

Two fire engines from Blackpool and one from Bispham attended the fire involving a chimney on Gretna Crescent shortly after 7pm.

By the time firefighters arrived at the scene, the fire had spread from the chimney to a first floor bedroom.

They used four breathing apparatus sets, two hose reels and two ventilation units to extinguish the blaze.

Three people in the house at the time the fire broke out were taken to hospital suffering from smoke inhalation.
