UPDATE, 22.10pm:

Reporter Simon Meechan is at the scene of the fire.

A neighbour, Maxine Lattimer, told him the blaze looked like a very large bonfire, then she saw a tree set alight. "Our whole back garden is covered in ash," she said, "It burnt a hole on our trampoline.

"[The flames] went right up through the tree."

We were sent this tweet earlier which shows the smoke which could be seen from about two miles away from the fire:
