A GARAGE was severely damaged in a fire near Beaminster last night.

A crew from the town were called to a property in Buckham at around 11pm and found the garage to be well alight.

The firefighters were joined by a crew from Crewkerne as they tackled the blaze and brought it under control by 11.30pm.

The cause of the fire, which caused severe damage to the garage and its contents, is yet to be determined.
