A wood burner caused a fire on a first floor balcony.

Two fire engines from Bridport and one from Charmouth responded to reports of the fire in Gundry Lane yesterday afternoon (Wednesday).

A spokesperson for Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service said: "It was a first floor balcony fire due to a wood burner.

"No action was taken by the fire service as the owner extinguished the fire themselves."
