One person received treatment following a roof blaze in Chester.

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service received a call just after 1.40am on Friday reporting a blaze at an address in Hollowmoor Heath.

One fire engine from Chester and one from Ellesmere Port attended the scene.

Firefighters used a ladder to reach the roof and removed tiles to gain access to the fire.

They then used a hosereel and a jet to put out the flames before using a thermal imaging camera to check for hot spots.

A spokesman for the fire and rescue service said one casualty suffering effects of smoke was treated by ambulance personnel.

Crews were at the scene for one hour and 40 minutes.
