THREE fire engines and police were called to a home this afternoon (Thurs) to tackle a blaze in an upstairs bedroom.

Two crews from Burnham and one from Bridgwater were called to the mid-terraced property in Highbridge Road, Burnham, at 12.55pm.

Two appliances were initially mobilised but while on route to the fire the first crew called for a third team to help tackle the blaze.

When firefighters arrived at the property, they could see flames coming from one of the upstairs bedrooms.

They then ventilated the property, but severe smoke damage was caused to the home.

Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service has not reported any injuries.
