A MUM and her daughter were forced to flee their house after a fire started in the kitchen of their terrace home in Southampton last night.
Two crews from Hightown fire station were called to the property in Hawkhurst Close, just before 6.45pm, after smoke detectors alerted the woman to the blaze in the kitchen.
She was able to escape unharmed with her daughter, closing all the doors of the house as she went, preventing the spread of the flames.
Firefighters had the fire extinguished within the hour, leaving the room badly damaged.
