No-one was injured in a large house fire that took crews from a wide area to extinguish.

But Mid and West Wales Fire Service said a dog and caged birds were killed in the fire on High Street in Borth, Ceredigion.

Firefighters were called at 15:33 BST on Friday and a major incident was declared.

Eight fire engines attended and nearby residents were evacuated to a community centre as gas cylinders were involved.

They were able to return to their houses once the cylinders had been made safe from about 22:00 on Friday.
