A fire in the window of a charity shop on Christmas morning was caused by sunlight refracting through a snow globe.
The sun's rays ignited fake reindeer food and snow on display in the window of the shop in Bournemouth, Dorset.
Occupants of neighbouring properties were advised to evacuate and firefighters put the flames out within 10 minutes of arriving on the scene.
A fire service spokesman said:
At the risk of sounding like a Christmas tale, the cause of the fire was believed to be sun refracting through a snow globe.
There was severe fire damage to the shop window display, heat damage to the window and severe smoke damage to the entire shop.
The fire service was also warning members of the public to be vigilant if they have snow globes in their own homes.
Fire investigators say these types of incidents are rare, but are possible, especially with the sun lower in the sky.
Consideration should be given to the possibility that this could happen in your homes, particularly with shaving type mirrors which can focus the suns rays and cause fires.

The Duchess of Cambridge has apologised for not bringing Prince George to the Royal Family's traditional Christmas Day church service.
William and Kate joined the Queen, Duke of Edinburgh and others for the religious gathering near the private Sandringham estate in Norfolk.
After the service the Duchess apologised to a mother and her young daughter, who were among 2,000 wellwishers outside the church, for not bringing her son. When Maddison Neal, aged eight from nearby Dersingham, gave Kate a Milky Bar selection box for George, she replied: "I'm sorry we didn't bring George but you would have heard him in the church."
Maddison's mother Sarah, 37, said: "We were hoping Kate would take the present but we didn't know if we'd be lucky enough to meet her. "Maddison met George on Sunday at the service at Anmer church. She helped him with his lantern and he blew her a kiss."
