Three fire appliances from Chard and Ilminster attended a property in Donyatt after a call from an occupant stating the front room was fully alight.

One further covering jet was positioned at the front of the building and a positive pressure ventilation fan also used. Crews checked adjoining properties using a gas monitor and thermal imaging camera.

The detached house measuring 15m by 10m of 2 storeys and constructed of stone walls and a tiled roof has 10% fire damage to the room of origin and 5% smoke damage to the remainder of the property.
