The bedroom of a house in Malvern Court, Nelson, was badly damaged in a fire early this morning.

Two pumps from Nelson Fire Station were called to the scene at 5-48am and spent around two and a half hours dealing with the incident.

All the occupants of the house had got out by the time the crews arrived.

Damage caused by the fire was largely restricted to the bedroom and the cause was still under investigation as we went to press.
