A CRADLEY road was closed when a fire broke out in a terraced house.

Fire crews from Haden Cross were called to the property in Windmill Hill shortly before 3.25pm on Tuesday March 13.

A spokesman for West Midlands Fire Service said there were no occupants in the property.

While crews tackled the fire, Windmill Hill was closed for over an hour with traffic including buses diverted. One lane was reopened a short time ago.

The fire was brought under control and put out but crews remained at the scene making the area safe.
