More than 30 firefighters have tackled a "serious" blaze at a thatched cottage in south Oxfordshire.
Crews managed to stop the fire in Cuxham, near Watlington, from spreading to the roof of the cottage, on Tuesday.
No-one was injured and the fire investigators said it was caused by an unattended open fire.
The fire service said if it had been left "only a few more minutes" it could have been "far worse" and would have threatened nearby properties.
