Six
fire engines were called to the two-storey mid-terrace house in
Otway Street.

Neighbours heard people shouting "fire, get out" as the flames
ripped through the property.

Two of them - Richard and Susan Miles - sent the footage above
to us.

One pump was still at the scene on Thursday morning -
although the fire was out by 2.30am.

Gas engineers cut the supply to the house and a police van
was at the scene.

A 22-year-old local man was arrested on suspicion of
arson.
