More than 70 firefighters have spent the night tackling a blaze at a thatched house in Suffolk.
Crews were called to Pepper Lane in Thurston just before 21:00 GMT on Monday.
Appliances from across the county attended the fire, which saw part of the roof collapse onto the first floor of the building.
The clear-up is now under way and an investigation into the cause of the fire has begun.
No-one was hurt in what is the second major thatched roof fire Suffolk firefighters have dealt with within a week.
Last Friday a cottage on Poy Street Green in Rattlesden was left virtually destroyed by fire.
