FIRE crews were called to a house blaze on Portland Terrace this morning (Wednesday 6th April).
Three fire engines as well as paramedics and police were called at about 8.40am after reports of a fire in an attic.
“It was a small house fire in an attic conversion,” said Gainsborough Fire Station manager Ken Baker.
“Three appliances attended and the fire was extinguished quite quickly using one hose reel and with two fire fighters using breathing apparatus.”
“Nobody was injured and all of the occupants escaped before the fire brigade arrived.”
He added: “Investigations into the cause of the fire are still continuing.”
