Family forced to flee after Royton fire

A family were forced to flee a fire at the rear of a house on Bromley Avenue in Royton overnight.

Shortly before midnight, a lean-to wooden outbuilding was believed to caught fire initially, and that spread to the house itself.

The house was badly smoke-damaged, but the Fire Service sent three engines to the scene within minutes and the fire was totally extinguished equally swiftly.

There were no reports of any injuries.
