A DOG died in a house fire in Melplash on the morning of new year's day.
Firefighters from Beaminster
were called to the property at around 6am where a conservatory was on fire.
The assistance of a retained crew from Charmouth
was also requested.
It is thought the blaze was started by a tea light or electrical fault with Christmas lights.
The dog was found deceased in another room at the property.
