A MOTHER and her three children were led to safety last night after a fire broke out at their home.

A neighbour helped the family evacuate the property on Brickfield, Hatfield at about 8.30pm.

Two crews from Hatfield and St Albans fire stations attended the scene and used a positive ventilation system to defuse the smoke.

The fire is believed to have been caused by clothes from a rail falling onto a table lamp in a back bedroom.

Damage was made to the carpet.

Firefighters left the scene at 9.15pm and no one was injured in the incident.
