Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue says flames were coming from a “brick building used as a garage or storage.”

Firefighters tackled the flames using breathing gear, leaving the scene shortly after midnight.

This morning the garage roof looks to have been largely destroyed.

The cause of the fire is not yet known, but no one was hurt in the incident.
