Two dogs were rescued from a house fire after one of the French bulldogs started it by jumping on a cooker.

The incident happened in Caerau, Cardiff, while the owners were out, and neighbours called emergency services after hearing the smoke alarm.

Two fire crews attended at about 16:50 GMT on Saturday and used breathing apparatus to rescue the two dogs.

Firefighters contacted the lucky pups' owners after they were rescued.
