Firefighters have tackled a blaze which broke out in the bedroom of a Ramsgate house.

Two fire engines and a British Red Cross unit were called to the property on Melbourne Avenue at 4.30pm.

They also used a positive pressure ventilation fan to clear smoke from the building.

There are no reports of any injuries and it is unclear at this stage how the fire may have started.
