PHP/MYSQL - query 2 table columns with single search string


My sql table consists of the following columns: house_number (int) and address (text). How can I query the table with a single search string e.g. "13 AnyStreet"? I suspect I should be using the explode function but I'm unsure how to go about it.

Thanks in advance

I should point out that I wouldn't be too happy if I saw someone doing this - concatenating fields in this way won't be  particularly fast. If you give me some more info on the context maybe they'll be a better way to do this?
