A woman was treated for smoke inhalation following a fire involving an aerosol can which badly damaged the ground floor of a house in West Sussex.

The 19-year-old managed to escape the blaze at the two-storey property in Church Green, Shoreham, on Thursday evening with her partner and baby.

Four crews, including four firefighters wearing breathing apparatus, tackled the fire.

They said the cause was an aerosol can near a tumble drier which had exploded
