Investigations are continuing into the cause of a fire that ripped through a house yesterday evening.

Firefighters were called to Gorse Close, Broadfield, Crawley, just before 7pm to find the building well alight.

The ground floor, first floor and roof were alight and the house suffered 90% damage.

Neighbouring properties on either side also suffered some smoke and heat damage.

Four crews were needed to tackle the blaze, which was eventually put out after two hours.

West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service said there were no reports of anyone being injured in the incident.
