A thatched roof property's been badly damaged by fire in Wareham.
Crews including one from the town attended the Kings Arms just before 8pm last night, to initial reports of a chimney fire.
Reinforcements from nearby stations were called in, including those using a specialist firefighting foam system to save as much of the thatched roof as possible.
The blaze was under control by half past eleven and Wareham firefighters reinspected at 2am with a thermal imaging camera to ensure no hotspots remained.
20 per cent of the thatch was damaged.
