FIRE crews have been dealing with a serious house blaze in Winwick this afternoon. 

Five fire engines were called to Gerosa Avenue at 2.50pm to tackle the flames in a semi-detached bungalow. 

A Cheshire Fire spokesman said: "Crews wearing breathing apparatus used two main jets and two hose reels to extinguish the fire, gaining access to the loft in the property next door where the fire had spread."

Firefighters are currently damping down the scene.
