Crews from Cosham, Havant, Southsea, Hayling Island and Portchester were alerted at around 2pm after the HIWFRS Control Room received multiple calls reporting the blaze.

Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus tackled the fire with hose reel jets, preventing the blaze from spreading to neighbouring properties.

The roof of the property collapsed, but fortunately no one suffered any injuries.

Crews cleared smoke from the scene with ventilation fans before conducting a series of home fire safety visits at nearby addresses.

HIWFRS returned to station following the stop message at 17:16, with one crew returning later in the evening to complete a reinspection of the scene.
