A major fire in Morecombelake this morning has destroyed nearly three quarters of a house on Star Lane with the rest of the building suffering significant smoke damage.

The fire took four fire crews wearing breathing equipment to put out and one casualty was treated for smoke inhalation.

The fire spread from the laundry room before making its way up to the roof of the house, severely damaging the building.

An investigation is underway but hasn't found what started the fire.
