More than 20 firefighters spent more than nine hours tackling a blaze at a house in Peterborough.

Crews from Dogsthorpe, Stanground, the Peterborough Volunteer Fire Brigade and Yaxley, along with a crew from Market Deeping in Lincolnshire, were called to Lincoln Road in Deeping Gate at 1.46am on Saturday September 23.

Firefighters arrived to find a well-developed fire involving a two-storey, detached house.

Wearing breathing apparatus, they extinguished the fire using hose reels and jets.

They returned to their stations by 11am.

The cause of the fire was accidental.
