THE cause of a fire which severely damaged a bungalow is yet to be determined.

A fire investigation officer was working yesterday afternoon to discover what caused the blaze at the property in Streat Hill, Plumpton.

The two people living in the home were alerted by a smoke alarm and escaped unhurt.

Six East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service crews were called to the property at 4.28am on Wednesday.

The fire started in a garage which spread to a roof void and the main building.

Crews spent half the day tackling the flames which gutted half of the property.
