RAF fire personnel joined Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue teams in tackling a severe house fire in Cranwell this afternoon.

The crews from Brant Broughton and Metheringham were called out to a property on Brauncewell Road at 2.56pm.

Two casualties were taken to hospital suffering from smoke inhalation and one pet cat was found deceased.

The blaze which was self-extinguished before the firefighters’ arrival was the result of a faulty tumble dryer.

It caused heat and smoke damage to both the utility room and kitchen, as well as severe smoke damage to the remainder of the house.
