A fire investigation is underway after flames gutted a house in Stone Cross on Friday night (May 1).

East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service responded to reports of a house fire at around 7.30pm on Friday evening .

Crews from Eastbourne and Hailsham attended the scene on Dittons Road and firefighters used four breathing apparatus, two hose-reel jets, one jet and a hydrant to tackle the blaze, which spread quickly through the house and destroyed the building’s roof structure.

All persons inside the house were accounted for and the East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service is now launching an investigation to determine what started the devastating fire.
