Fire crews were called to deal with a fire at a property in Huntingdon at the weekend and say it was 'remarkable' that no-one was harmed.

Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service were called to the blaze at 1.09am on Sunday, June 6, at Bloomfield Drive, in Huntingdon.  

Six firefighter crews from Huntingdon and St Neots arrived to find a well-developed fire involving a shed in the garden of a house, which was spreading to a van.  

Wearing breathing apparatus they extinguished the fire using hose reels and returned to their stations by 2.45am.  

The cause of the fire was accidental and the fire service has said it was "remarkably" the family were unharmed. 

Neighbours believe the fire started in a tumble drier, which was in a garden shed and one has set up a Go Fund Me page to raise money for the family after items were destroyed in the blaze.
