Pets killed in Carlisle house fire

Two family pets died in the kitchen of a bungalow after a serious fire.

The dog and cat were found after firefighters from both of Carlisle’s stations battled the blaze, on Wansfell Avenue in Morton, for around two hours.

They received the call just after 8pm yesterday and the last of the crews did not return to their station until 10.10pm.

Crew manager Anthony Rooney said: “There was quite a significant amount of damage to the bungalow’s kitchen.”

Fire investigation teams are set to revisit the bungalow today to try to find out what caused the blaze. However, there are no suspicious circumstances surrounding it.
