TWO men have been arrested on suspicion of arson with intent following a large fire in north Oxford this morning.

Residents from two blocks of flats have been evacuated from Hawksmoor Road, in Cutteslowe while emergency service crews deal with the blaze.

Eight fire engines are currently battling the fire which has engulfed two blocks of a four-block set.

The incident began at about 9.30am.

South Central Ambulance Service spokesman James Keating-Wilkes said there were no casualties, but the ambulance would remain on scene due to the nature of the incident.
