A FIRE ripped through the ground floor of a propety in Tadley, completely destroying the kitchen.

Crews from Basingstoke, Tadley and Kingsclere were called to the blaze at the property in Heather Drive, at 11.50am on August 1.

Flames spread from the ground floor living room area of the semi-detached house, into the kitchen which was “100 per cent damaged” with other areas of the house having smoke damage.

Four sets of breathing apparatus and two hose reel jets were needed to extinguish the flames.

The cause of the fire is unknown at this time but fire crews are still investigating.
