A BLAZE broke out at a house in Rosegrove earlier today bringing the area to a standstill.

Fire crews were called to the Lowerhouse Lane property around midday after reports of thick smoke billowing from the roof.

Police sealed off the road as firefighters moved in to tackle the blaze and neighbours gathered to watch events unfolding.

The occupant, a man believed to be in his 30s, escaped unharmed but was treated for smoke inhalation at the scene.
