TWO people have been treated in hospital for smoke inhalation following a chip pan fire at a house in Wallasey this morning.

Fire crews from Birkenhead and Wallasey were called to a mid-terraced property in Springfield Place at around 5am.

The house had smoke alarms which alerted a neighbour who call the fire service.

The occupants, a 29-year-old woman and 26-year-old man, suffered slight smoke inhalation and were taken to Arrowe Park Hospital by Ambulance.

The chip pan and its contents and electric cooker were damaged by fire. There was light smoke damage to the rest of the property.
