House roof destroyed in blaze

Have your say

THE roof of a house at Gosberton Risegate has been completely destroyed in a blaze which saw firefighters on the scene for six hours.

The fire broke out at the semi-detached house in Siltside at about 3.30pm yesterday.

Fire crews from Donington and Spalding attended initially and were later joined by crews from Kirton, Holbeach and a second crew from Spalding.

The roof was destroyed, while the rest of the house, including the garage, was severely water and smoke damaged.

Firefighters used two breathing apparatus, four hose reel jets and three main jets to tackle the blaze, which was caused by hot metal filings from an angle grinder igniting wood shavings.
