Three taken to hospital after Cumbrian house fire

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.

No. It's already clear we're not part of it

Only if we speak up and demand to be involved
