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

Crews from Eastbourne and Hailsham attended the scene on Dittons Road at 7.30pm and used four breathing apparatus, two hose-reel jets, one jet and a hydrant to tackle the blaze.

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.
