A COUPLE escaped safely from a new-buildÂ house that wasÂ badly damaged after a television caught fire today.
Smoke was seen pouring out of the window of the Hollands CloseÂ house in PaulsgroveÂ - which had only been built earlier this year - as the two people inside evacuated themselves.
Crews from Portchester and Cosham were called to theÂ blaze at theÂ two-storey propertyÂ at 1.33pm.Â
A television in theÂ living room on the ground floor had caught fire -Â going on to cause 70 per cent smokeÂ damageÂ throughout the house.Â Â
A resident said: '˜I saw smoke coming out of the window before two people escaped.'Â Â
