Crews from Dorchester and Weymouth attended a flat fire in High East Street, Dorchester today (February 9).

Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service were called at 10.40am to a fire that had broken out in a flat in the town.

Thankfully, due to the early activation of alarms within the building, everyone inside the building managed to get out of the property before the fire crews turned up.

The fire was extinguished before the firefighters arrived.
