FOUR children and two adults escaped from their bungalow after it caught fire during the early hours of the morning.

The blaze in the childrens' playroom of the bungalow's extension in Westfield Road, Winnersh, Wokingham, is thought to have been started by a heater which had been left on.

Two fire engines were despatched to the property at 4.25am, from Wokingham Road and Wokingham Fire Stations, where they found the family had already left the bungalow.

The fire caused damage to furniture and melted skylight cables in ceiling.
