Dorset house fire under investigation

About 25 firefighters have tackled a fire at a house in Dorset.

Crews were called to Breach Lane, Kington Magna, near Gillingham, on Sunday afternoon and remained at the scene until the early hours.

The first floor of the house was involved and the roof was completely destroyed. Crews returned to the scene earlier to inspect the building.

The cause of the blaze is unknown but an investigation is under way with police.

Fire investigation officer, Steve Waller said: "This was a particularly difficult incident due to the remote location and access to a water supply.

"We will be investigating the cause of this fire in conjunction with scenes of crime officers from Dorset Police."
