Firefighters have been called out to a second major blaze in Lincoln within a week after a fire broke out on the first floor of a semi-detached house.
Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue received reports of a fire on Oval Avenue in the St Giles area at just after 8.30am on December 23.
Four appliances from Lincoln North & South fire stations used two main jets, plus other equipment, to extinguish the fire in the upstairs and roof area of the house.
The fire was put out at around 9.45am and firefighters are using fans to clear smoke from the building.
A family with three small children lives in the flats. There are no serious injuries reported.
Firefighters have said that everyone is accounted for from the property, but it is unclear at this stage what medical treatment the residents will require.
An ambulance is at the scene of the blaze and fire investigators will be there throughout the day to attempt to establish a cause.
This fire comes just days after a blaze on De Wint Avenue in the Moorland area of the city, which killed a 17-year-old boy.
