Northumbria Police and the North East Ambulance Service were also dispatched to give support and one person was treated for minor injuries at the scene.

Steve Thomas, TWFRS Station Manager, reassured the public that the house was “structurally safe” – and that the incident appears to have been caused by “gas build-up” inside the property.
