Albrighton and Telford Central fire stations each sent one crew to the incident which involved a wheelie bin.

The bin was underneath a carport - a covered structure used to offer protection for vehicles - attached to the house.

The carport and a fence were damaged by the fire which crews extinguished using a hose reel jet.

Elsewhere in the county, the fire service received a call at 7.15pm reporting a property fire in Bishop's Castle.
