Firefighters clear house of smoke

Have your say

A FAN was used to clear a house which filled with smoke after a fire in a kitchen.

Firefighters were told people were trapped in side the semi-detached home, in Beaumont Crescent, Horden when they were called to the incident, which happened at about 11pm on Monday.

When the crew arrived, they found everyone accounted for and the fire out, but used a positive pressure fan to clear the property of fumes.
