Two elderly people escaped a house fire in Kimberley last night, Monday, August 3.

Crews from Eastwood and Stockhill received the call at 5.53pm to attend the scene at Cliff Boulevard.

They used two breathing apparatus and a hose-reel jet to extinguish the flames, and a thermal imaging camera was used.

The residents were given precautionary checks by the ambulance service.
