A baby has been rescued from a house fire in Exeter.
The blaze, on the ground floor of a house in the Mount Pleasant area of the city, started at about 23:00 GMT on Monday.
Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue said police officers managed to get the baby from the property before fire crews arrived.
The 12-month-old was taken to the Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital and treated for the effects of breathing in smoke.
The baby's mother was unhurt, a Devon and Cornwall Police spokesman said.
