Firefighters were called to a house fire in Ermine West, Lincoln, just before 7.30pm on Thursday.

An upstairs bedroom and hallway were gutted and the ground floor was smoke damaged, at the house on Edendale Gardens.

Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue dispatched crews from Lincoln, Waddington and Saxilby to tackle the blaze.

Officers said that the fire was started by the careless handling of a blow torch earlier in the day.
