A semi-detached house fire had spread to a neighbouring property and engulfed both roofs.

The road was closed to allow emergency services to work.

The cause of the fire is as of yet unknown, but a fire commander at the scene told the Peterborough Telegraph that all residents had been safely evacuated from the properties.

The public are asked to avoid the area while crews continue to work.
