FIREFIGHTERS were called to a third floor flat in Swanage this morning, after smoke was spotted coming from the building.

Upon arrival, two fire crews – one from Swanage and one from Wareham – tackled a small fire in a bedroom.

Dorset Fire & Rescue Service (DFRS) say it was caused by discarded smoking materials.

No-one was injured and fire damage was confined to a bed, a small patch of carpet and floor boards.

However, the remainder of the property sustained smoke damage.

The drama occurred around 8.40am in Park Road.

A DFRS spokesman said: “If you are a smoker keep matches and lighters out of the reach of children, preferably in a high cupboard or drawer.

"Do not smoke in bed but if you do, ensure that all smoking materials are extinguished before you fall asleep.”
