A child and a woman suffered from smoke inhalation following a blaze at their North Kensington flat yesterday morning.
The fire broke out in Appleford Road, Golborne, at 9.11am on Tuesday. It was under control by 10.35am.
Two other women, from a nearby home, also escaped the blaze, but inhaled fumes.
Fire fighters from Paddington and North Kensington went to the scene, which is by St Thomas Church of England Primary School.
An eye witness reported seeing 'plumes of smoke' and firemen running around. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
