TWO homes were damaged after a garden shed went up in flames.

Firefighters were called to the scene in the Woodpeckers in Littlemoor at 10.50pm last night.

A spokesman for Weymouth Fire Station said: "Weymouth wholetime and on-call firefighters were called to a garden shed well alight in The Woodpeckers.

"The fire was of an extent that the exterior of both the property and the neighbouring property suffered damage.

"Crews used two breathing apparatus and two hose reel jets to extinguish the fire.

"Crews remained on scene to ensure the burnt material was cooled before leaving."
