Firefighters had to smash a window to tackle a flat fire in Sunderland last night.

A crew from Sunderland Central fire station was called to the flat, above a second-hand shop in Hylton Road, at 6.20pm last night.

“We had to use a ladder to gain access through a first floor window,” said watch manager Garry Teasdale.

“The building had been converted into flats, but they were unoccupied.”
