A woman and two young children have been taken to hospital after a house fire.

The blaze started in the living room of a house on Bolton Street, Workington, shortly before 4.30pm.

It is understood they are not seriously injured and that they have been taken to hospital as a precaution.

The woman had been upstairs with one of the children when she heard the other child, a one-year-old boy, screaming.

She ran downstairs to find a blaze had taken hold in her front room .

The woman ran to a neighbour's house who called the fire service.

Two fire engines attended and firefighters wearing breathing apparatus quickly brought the blaze under control.
