FIREFIGHTERS tackled a blaze at a block of flats in Gosport last night.

Gosport crews were called at 8.16pm after a fire in a binshed spread to the side of De Lucy Court, in St. Vincent Road.

Breathing apparatus and a hose reel jet were used to extinguish the flames, which were put out just under an hour later.

Damage was caused to the side of the roof which exposed timbers.

Firefighters were unable to reveal if any residents were evacuated from the premises.

A police investigation is currently underway into the cause of the incident.
