Three people were forced to leave the house before the brigade arrived but no one was injured.
Station Manager Sanjay Prasad was at the scene, he said: “This was a severe fire in the basement. The first fire crews in attendance worked hard to contain the fire. They successfully managed to contain it so that the neighbouring property was protected.”
