One woman is recovering in hospital after sustaining serious injuries when she was forced to jump 30ft for her life to escape the flames.

Firefighters are still clearing away the wreckage and trying to establish exactly what triggered the blaze.

Bohemia station crew commander George O’Reilly said: “This was one of the worst fires we’ve had to deal with in the town for almost 30 years.”
