A house fire broke out in Stroud on Friday evening (August 16).

Smoke could be seen pouring from the third floor bedroom of a house in Lower Street.

Two fire crews from Stroud were called just before 10.30am.

They used two hose reels and two sets of breathing apparatus to exxtinguish the fire before leaving the scene at 1am.

The building was 50 per cent damaged by fire but there were no casualties.
