Fire at 13th Century manor house
Fire crews have been fighting a blaze at an historic house in Salisbury, Wiltshire.

Brigades were called to 13th Century Malmesbury House at The Close on Wednesday afternoon.

A Wiltshire Brigade spokesman said the fire started in the ground and first- floor bay windows before spreading up to the roof space.

Crews from around south east Wiltshire used six pumps and three ladders to try to extinguish the flames.
