Crews from Bilston, Brierley Hill, Dudley and Tipton were called to the blaze at a semi-detached house on Rosemary Crescent in Dudley.

A thick pillar of grey smoke could be seen billowing from the roof of the house.

Twenty firefighters and four engines attended the scene on Friday, and used a hydraulic platform to help fight the fire, which was extinguished before 5pm.

A spokesperson for West Midlands Fire Service said: "We were called to a fire at a semi-detached property on Rosemary Crescent in Dudley at around 1.10pm.

"Crews and appliances from Bilston, Brierley Hill, Dudley and Tipton attended the scene, with four hoses used in fighting what was a severe fire.

"Crews at the scene managed to extinguish the fire and the last appliance left the scene about 5.10pm.

"No injuries were reported from the scene."

An investigation is still under way to find out the cause of the blaze.
