Nine students have escaped a house fire in Bournemouth.
The blaze broke out in the detached property on Bemister Road at about 05:40 GMT.
Dorset & Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service said it started after a portable heater was left too close to bedding in one of the rooms.
Station manager Stuart Granger said working smoke alarms had saved the lives of the students.
The local council is helping the students to find alternative accommodation.
