Ten people and a dog have been re-housed after a severe fire at a terraced house in Andover.

Firefighters were called to the blaze in Pilgrims Way on Saturday afternoon to a blaze initially affecting the garden of one of the properties which had quickly spread to an end-of-terrace house.

Crews from Andover, Eastleigh, Overton, Basingstoke, Alresford, Romsey and Service Headquarters were called to attend the seven-pump incident.

Six adults, four children and one dog are set to be rehoused following the fire, which caused "100 per cent" damage to one home, and "30 per cent" damage to the neighbouring roof.

The blaze was put out by half past seven with no reports of any injuries.
