Sub Officer Tim Sammons said: “We were called to reports of a car alight that had spread up the outside of the house.
“There were a number of mobility scooters parked outside which had caught alight and were producing a large amount of smoke and flames.
“Everyone was out of the building before we arrived and crews worked incredibly hard to prevent further damage to the inside of the property and to neighbouring properties.
“Our fire investigation dogs also attended to help identify any ignitable substances present.”
