AN electrical fault is believed to be behind a fire at a Gosport home.

Firefighters were alerted to the blaze in an electrical cupboard at a home in Nursery Close, Gosport, shortly before 3pm on Monday.

Two crews from Fareham and Gosport attended and used six breathing apparatus, two jets and a hose to put out the flames.

The fire caused heavy smoke logging in the house, which was cleared with fans. No one was hurt.
