Shropshire Fire and Rescue were called out twice to Diddlebury, near Craven Arms, on Sunday.

In the first incident a car was completely destroyed by fire just after 5pm.

One fire appliance was mobilised from Craven Arms to tackle the fire.

On arrival, the crew found the saloon completely immersed in the blaze.

The stop message, that indicates the fire was under control, was received just half an hour later at 5.32pm.

A report of a chimney fire at The Moors on the outskirts of Diddlebury followed just over an hour later.

One crew from Ludlow was dispatched to tackle the chimney fire, working for over an hour with buckets of water and thermal imaging equipment to extinguish the fire that broke out in a log-burning stove.
