Children hospitalised after fire next door

Four children have been taken to hospital after a fire in their neighbour's home in Liverpool in the early hours of this morning (2nd September).

Two girls, aged 8 and 4, and two boys, aged 6 and 3, were taken to University Hospitals Aintree for a check up following the fire on Guilsted Road in Norris Green.

Neighbours from other houses also had to have medical attention, including a 40-year-old man who was treated at the scene because he'd breathed in smoke and a 14-month-old girl who was taken to hospital for a check up.

The ground floor of the terraced house was badly damaged by the fire.
