VIDEO: Toy helicopter to blame for blaze which hospitalised a woman and two children

A woman, young boy and baby girl have been taken to hospital following this morning’s house fire in Monkston Park which is believed to have been caused by a toy helicopter on charge.

Three homes were caught up in the blaze which saw the roof of one of the two-storey terraced houses on Finsbury Chase collapse.

Neighbours say they took in three families whose homes were affected.

One said: “Three families live in that block of houses. They’ve been taken in by neighbours. We’re a tight-knit bunch around here.”

Crews from Bletchley, Broughton and Great Holm arrived at the scene at at around 8am with three fire engines and a turntable ladder.

And an update from Bucks Fire and Rescue Service on Twitter just before 2pm, said an electric toy helicopter being charged was ‘believed’ to be the cause.
