Pictured: Fire drama in Highbridge as woman escapes house blaze

Plumes of thick smoke billowed out of this home in Highbridge on Sunday morning when three fire crews were called to tackle a house blaze.

Two fire engines from Burnham-On-Sea and one from Bridgwater were called to Sparks Way just before 10am, as pictured here.

A woman inside managed to escape, but required treatment for smoke inhalation after the damaging blaze.

"Fire crews used two hose reels and four breathing apparatus to extinguish the fire which is believed to have started in the lounge," a fire spokesman told

"The woman inside was given oxygen therapy by firefighters before ambulance crews treated her." He said the property was badly smoke damaged and an investigation is underway into the cause.
