A call was received at 7.30pm last night to reports of a fire on Brookhouse Road in Meir, Stoke on Trent.
Two crews from Longton attended the incident which involved a fire within the roof space of the semi detached property. Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used a hose reel jet to tackle the fire and ventilated the property.
The fire, which caused smoke logging to the first floor and fire damage to the loft space, is believed to have been caused accidentally due to a faulty central heating boiler.
Crews left the incident at 9.20pm.
