Fire broke out at a house in Penrith, causing significant damage.

Firefighters were called to the property, in Friargate, at 9.30pm yesterday.

The blaze started in the kitchen.

The room, measuring eight metres square, was badly damaged.

Firefighters wearing breathing equipment used hose reel jets to bring the blaze under control.

A thermal imaging camera was then used to make sure there were no hotspots that could reignite.

A high pressure fan was used to ventilate the property.

How did this obvious anti-Labour comment get through moderation? Oh wait, biased Cumbrian Newspapers are happy to bash the Labour Party in favour of their pro-Tory bias. To follow on from the comment has May been to visit the fireman and ignored the poor people who suffered because of the fire? Was there enough fire cover in the area while they dealt with this fire because of Tory or austerity measures keeps cutting back essential services?
