A fire has broken out in the St Pauls area of Cheltenham this evening.
The blaze was spotted around 9.15pm when a shed on Brunswick Street caught fire.
The family inside were woken by neighbours who also called the fire service.
Firemen quickly put out the fire with hoses and there are no known injuries, with the family inside making it out safely.
Next-door neighbour Maisie Bruno said: “We heard bangs but just thought they were fireworks”.
Fellow neighbour Gwenllian Thomas said: “I’m so glad everyone made it out okay, it was so big I can’t believe we didn’t notice it sooner.”
Neighbour Adam Spragg said: “The fire brigade were heroes, they came so quickly and put it out with the big hoses so well.”
The fire has burnt out the whole of the shed, and only the frame remains.
Police have arrived on the scene and are investigating the cause of the fire.
If anyone has any information, please call 101 quoting crime 490 on October 25.
