A passer-by rescued two dogs and a cat from a house fire in Hoole after telling the occupier to get out.
Emergency services have now extinguished the blaze in Kilmorey Park Avenue after being called out on Tuesday (March 8).
A spokesperson for Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service confirmed all persons have been accounted for.
They added: "A passerby alerted one male occupier to the fire and also rescued two dogs and a cat, prior to the arrival of the firefighters."
The fire was contained within a first-floor bedroom. Damage was visible on a blackened wall above a window at the rear of the property.
Crews from Ellesmere Port and Chester fire stations were called to the scene shortly before 2pm and the blaze was put out by about 2.45pm.
Chester station manager Paul Watts said: "The firefighters did a great job containing what was a difficult fire and prevented it from spreading into the roof space.
"At the height of the fire we had six firefighters wearing breathing apparatus and they used two hose reels to fight the fire."
A large fan was used to remove a 'considerable amount of smoke' from inside.
Cheshire Fire added an investigation into the cause of the blaze is under way.
Kilmorey Park Avenue remains closed at the Hoole Road end.
