More than 70 firefighters from Hampshire and Wiltshire worked through the night to bring a thatch fire under control in Monxton.
The fire took hold in two thatched properties in the High Street and twelve fire crews battled to stop the spread to neighbouring properties.
No one was hurt in the incident and it is understood that the residents and their dogs took refuge in the nearby Hawk Inn pub whilst the emergency services dealt with the fire.
Today, crews remain at the scene damping down and checking for hot spots. The cause of the blaze is being investigated.
