The investigation has still to be carried out, a South Wales Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said. 


FIREFIGHTERS battled a major fire in a Monmouthshire village for three hours this morning.

They were called to a house on St Mary's Close in Llanfair Kilgeddin after fire spread from a car and a caravan.

At the height of the blaze at about 2.30am six fire engines – from Usk, Abergavenny, New Inn and Cwmbran – were tackling it.

A South Wales Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said the property was "well alight" at that time.

The New Inn crew remain at the house and are damping the fire down. An investigation to find the cause of the fire will start at 9am. 

Paramedics treated a person for minor injuries but they were not taken to hospital.
