Two people have been arrested following a fire in Newcastle-under-Lyme.
We were called to Wedgwood Street at around 6.50am on Tuesday (4 July) following reports of a flat fire.
Fire crews from Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service were also sent to the scene and extinguished a fire in the living room area.
A woman was taken to hospital as a precaution for smoke inhalation.
A 51-year-old man and a 50-year-old woman, both from Newcastle-under-Lyme, were arrested on suspicion of arson with intent to endanger life.
They have since been released on conditional police bail while inquiries continue.
Any witnesses or anyone with any information is asked to get in touch with us through Live Chat on our website – www.staffordshire.police.uk, or by calling 101, quoting incident number 076 of 4 July.
