An historic thatched cottage in Cuxham near Watlington in Oxfordshire was damaged by fire on the evening of Tuesday 15th October.

Seven fire engines tackled the blaze as it threatened to engulf the property. The building is next door to the Half Moon pub which itself was severely damaged by fire in 2002.
