DOZENS of firefighters from across Berkshire and Oxfordshire more than four hours tackling a fire at a house in Wargrave today.

Crews from Wokingham and Wokingham Road fire stations were called to the property in the High Street at around 9.30am this morning.

They joined crews from Wallingford and Henley Fire Stations in tackling the flames at the Grade II listed building.

An aerial appliance from high Wycombe also attended, but was not required.

The A321 was closed to traffic while firefighters attended the scene.

The fire is believed to have originated in the downstairs of the property, before spreading to an upstairs bedroom.

Thankfully, no-one was at home when the fire broke out.

Hose reels and firefighters wearing breathing apparatus helped to bring the flames under control.
