Firefighters tackled a blaze which started in a faulty washing machine.
Crews from Brampton and Carlisle East were called to a property on the road between High Gelt Bridge and Castle Carrock at about 6.30am on Saturday.
The washing machine was well alight on arrival and firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used a hose reel jet to put the fire out.
The property was then ventilated to clear the smoke. None of the occupants were hurt.
