A shocking video shows a terrifying blaze that ripped through a whole house.

Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service posted the video on social media.

They reported that four fire crews from Thame, Slade Park, BFRS High Wycombe and Wallingford plus an incident command unit worked tirelessly to control and prevent the severe house fire spreading to next door in Tetsworth, near Thame, just after 10pm last night.

The occupants were able to fortunately escape moments before the fire took hold and spread throughout.

Police worked overnight and are continuing to support fire crews today.

An investigation is under way to determine the cause.

Initial findings suggest it was caused by a battery powered-item on charge inside the house.

Crews said they will be leaving scene shortly.
