A fire at a thatched property saw several teams of firefighters tackling the blaze for many hours on Wednesday (November 27).
Northants Fire and Rescue Service was called to the property in Chapel Road, Weldon, at 1.20am.
The thatch and roof were severely damaged in the fire.
The photograph supplied by neighbour David Simpkins was taken at 4.30am. Mr Simpkins said: “At this time there were three firefighters in breathing apparatus fighting the fire from the inside. Everyone left the building safely.”
Firefighers were still in attendance in the evening to damp down the property and to ensure a fire did not start up again.
