Worthing family evacuated from home after loft fire
10:49am Sunday 11th August 2013 in News
A family were forced to evacuate their flat after a fire broke out in their loft.
The family escaped from their home in Ash Grove, Worthing, at 11pm last night after an electrical fault set items in their loft on fire.
Firefighters spent about 45 minutes dealing with the fire in the semi-detached home which they said caused considerable damage to floorboards in the loft.
The alarm was raised after a man aged in his 50s living in the house smelt burning.
