The mother was also taken to hospital after breathing in smoke during the blaze in Sawkins Avenue, which started around 8.45pm. Her three children escaped unhurt.

Two fire crews from Chelmsford reported that the whole of the first floor was heavily smoke logged upon their arrival.

The fire was under control by 9.20pm and firefighters used a high pressure fan to clear the building of smoke.

A Red Cross victim support unit assisted the family at the scene.
