A 60-year-old woman has been taken to hospital after a large fire at a terraced cottage in Yeovil.
Fire crews were called to Higher Street, in Norton Sub Hamdon, at 1130 GMT on Tuesday where it took three hours to put out the blaze.
The fire also spread to a second property next door. The police were called in to control a crowd of people who had gathered to watch.
The woman is being treated at Yeovil District Hospital for smoke inhalation.
It is not yet known what the cause of the fire was.
