Fire Engulfs Home In Cessnock

Firefighters are working to contain an inferno at a home in Cessnock this afternoon.

Fire tore through the roof of a home in King Street and jumped to a neighbouring property a little after 3pm, with eight crews at the scene in defensive mode trying to get the flames under control.

Paramedics have assessed two patients - one for smoke inhalation.

Thankfully no one has been trapped inside either home.
