Firefighters were called to a house in The Drive in Abington, after the blaze broke out in the early hours of this morning (Tuesday, October 16).

Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service were called just after 1am.

The roof actually collapsed after the upper floor and roof were so badly damaged.

The pair rescued from the house have been taken to Northampton General Hospital.

The cause of the fire is currently being investigated.
