A Thame house has been gutted by flames following a large fire on Thursday (December 7).

Three fire engines arrived at the home at 2.30pm to find a “well-developed” fire had broken out with heavy smoke coming from the property, which had blackened windows.

The crews, from Thame Fire Station, Slade Park Fire Station and BFRS Aylesbury Fire Station, had to force entry to a door at the rear of the premises.
