Man seriously hurt in fire in Lincoln

A man suffered serious burns in a suspected arson attack in Lincoln.

A "ferocious" fire ripped through the three-storey property in West Parade at about 04:00 GMT on Tuesday, Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue said.

It is not yet known what caused the fire at the house, which is divided into 10 flats, but it is being treated as suspicious.

Two people were taken to hospital suffering from the effects of breathing in smoke. Three others were not hurt.

The seriously injured man, believed to be in his 20s, was taken to Nottingham's Queen's Medical Centre for treatment.
