A spokesman for Bridport Fire Station said: "Thankfully the fire was spotted early on, as the radiated heat had already started to melt the guttering and break windows of both properties close by. Had this not been the case, a shed fire would have turned into a property fire with people sleeping inside."

Details of the incident have been passed to the police.
