A number of residents spoke of seeing plumes of smoke.

One nearby resident, who reported the fire, said: "I was woken up early by the fire and saw smoke coming from the bedroom window.

"So I rang the fire service and I saw two engines arrive.

"There was a man who lived there but he moved out a few days ago so no one was in there and it's all boarded up now."

Another resident added: "I saw plumes of smoke coming from the bedroom window and there were fire engines and a police van outside."
