Around thirty 999 calls were made into the HIWFRS Control Room yesterday afternoon to report a shed fire in Waterlooville.

Crews from Waterlooville, Havant, Southsea and Cosham were alerted shortly after half three to the blaze on Yoells Lane.

The shed was well alight when firefighters arrived with the blaze quickly spreading to the roof of the two-storey house.

Ambulance paramedics were called to treat a casualty suffering with smoke inhalation, whilst police officers were on the scene to close the road.

Nobody was inside the property as part of the roof collapsed due to the fire which was extinguished using jets and hose reels.

Crews left the scene following the stop message at 17:40.
