80 people vacate homes after major gas leak fire
Eighty people were forced to leave their homes after a severe fire, which had been exacerbated by a gas leak.
Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service said they were called to a large blaze at Hyholmes, North Bretton, at 12.31am yesterday and took more than 12 hours to put it out.
Crews discovered a substantial fire in a building in the Peterborough suburb which was affecting a gas mains supply. Firefighters set up hose reels to prevent the fire spreading to nearby properties, while a 330ft cordon was in place.
No one was injured in the incident.
