Woman treated for smoke inhallation after house fire in Langtoft

A woman had to be given oxygen by fire crews after her house caught fire in Langtoft this morning.

The woman was making candles in the kitchen of her semi-detached house in the village when paraffin wax in a pan was left unattended and went up in flames.

Crews from Bourne and Market Deeping were called at about 10.53am and put out the fire with a pan lid, but severe smoke damage was caused to the kitchen.
