A dog was saved by firefighters after a house caught fire. 

The dog was rescued from a property in Mepal after a fire broke out yesterday afternoon (Thursday). 

Nobody was injured in the blaze. 

A Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said: “At 3.20pm, one crew from Chatteris and the south roaming fire engine were called to a house fire on Meadow Way, Mepal.
