Two people were escorted from their St Neots home last night (Wednesday) after a fire broke out in a bedroom.

Firefighters were called to Sandfields Road at about 11pm after the alarm was raised. The fire was extinguished by 11.37pm.

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “Crews also led two people to safety.”

Paramedics assessed a man and a woman at the scene before taking one for further treatment for smoke inhalation.

The cause of fire was accidental.
