PET RESCUE: A dog was rescued from a Sidmouth house when a quick-thinking neighbour heard a smoke alarm sounding and dialled 999.
Firefighters freed the terrier from a Baker Close dwelling, which was heavily smoke-logged after a blaze involving a saucepan in the kitchen of the property.
Rescuers wore breathing apparatus and had to force their way into the home to put out the fire.
They said the cause of the blaze was accidental.
