Woman rescued from bungalow fire

A woman had to be rescued from her Dorset home after a fire broke out in her lounge.

Ten firefighters tackled the blaze in a bungalow in Bedford Road, Weston, Weymouth, on Tuesday night. The woman was taken to hospital.

Dorset Fire and Rescue Service said the cause of the fire is thought to have been an electrical short circuit.

Crews will revisit the area next week to speak to residents in neighbouring homes about fire safety precautions.
