Firefighters rush to put out Boston house fire

A passerby tried to help put the fire out with buckets

Firefighters rushed to put out a house fire in Boston, which saw flames and smoke billowing out of the roof.

The blaze took hold of the property near the A52 in the centre of town, close to the train station, at around 10am on Tuesday, December 3.

Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue said they had sent four crews with an aerial ladder to Queen Street for a property fire.

One passerby Lynden Brown said on a local community page that she tried to help put the fire out with buckets but it was “too much for buckets.”

She said that the homeowners were “shaken up but okay.”

Update: Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue said just before 12pm that they now have the fire under control and are still at the property damping down.
