Fire chiefs have praised crews who tackled a blaze at a thatched roof property in Powerstock yesterday.

More than 40 firefighters from Bridport, Beaminster, Charmouth and Dorchester kept damage to a minimum

Station Manager Stuart Jeneson, incident commander said: "Crews did a fantastic job knocking the fire back and keeping property damage to a minimum. It was a small area of thatch involved adjacent to the chimney. We always recommend chimneys are swept and well maintained, especially in thatch properties."
