Three people have been treated for the effects of smoke inhalation following a fire at a house in Surrey.

About 40 firefighters spent six hours tackling the blaze in Shawley Way, Epsom Downs, after being called to the scene at about 20:15 BST on Wednesday.

Surrey Fire and Rescue said the roof of the property was completely destroyed, and the ground floor had smoke and water damage.

Fire crews were still on the scene on Thursday checking for hot spots.

A buildings inspector was also due to check the condition of the property.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
