TWO fire crews put out a house fire in Govilon this evening.

Firefighters from Blaenavon and Abergavenny left the mid-terrace house on Dragon Lane at 7pm and 7.45pm respectively.

They had dealt with the blaze, which started in a bedroom, since 5.50pm.

The house was evacuated and one person was taken to hospital for a precautionary check up, a South Wales Fire and Rescue Service (SWFRS) spokeswoman said.

SWFRS’s head of fire control Jennie Griffiths had earlier tweeted that the first floor of the house was “well alight”.
