Firefighters tackled a major fire involving the annexe of a property.

One crew from Sturminster Newton and a crew from Sherborne were sent to the scene.

On arrival at the scene in Pulham, just before 6pm on Sunday, the crews confirmed the building to be well alight and got to work using one main line and one hose reel jet.

A spokesman for Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service said: "An extra appliance was requested for manpower, which was sent from Shaftesbury fire station. The incident was sectorised and further assistance was requested.

"Extra crew becoming available meant that the additional two pumps came from second crews at Sturminster Newton and Sherborne.

"A command support unit from Sherborne and various officers also went as a result.

"The fire was extinguished using four hose reel jets, two main lines, one ground monitor, one roof ladder and one triple extension ladder.

"Relief crews came from Maiden Newton and Dorchester, and a final re-inspection was completed by a crew from Sturminster Newton before the incident was closed.

"Thanks to Blandford and Yeovil (the latter from Devon & Somerset FRS) crews for providing standby cover at Sturminster Newton and Sherborne whilst the incident was in progress."
