Two people taken to hospital after Melksham house fire

Two people have been taken to hospital after a fire broke out at a house in Wiltshire.

Firefighters were called to Murray Walk in Melksham at about 1300 GMT.

Crews from four stations battled the blaze, which is thought to have started in a garage and then spread to the property.

A fire service spokesman said a man sustained burns to the face, while a woman was treated for shock. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

He said the house was badly damaged and a car in the garage was destroyed.
