  • 1-24-2012

A 29-year-old man has been arrested after a fire at a house in the Braunstone area of Leicester.

Neighbours used a ladder to help rescue a woman and four children from the house in Webster Road on Sunday morning.

Four of the occupants were treated at Leicester Royal Infirmary for the effects of smoke inhalation.

Leicestershire Police said smoke alarms installed at the property helped save the family from more serious injuries.

Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service said three fire crews were sent to the property, which suffered fire damage to the back door and smoke damage to the interior.

The arrested man remains in police custody.
