Police and fire brigade experts are to investigate the cause of a fire at a flat in Wyndham View, Yeovil earlier this morning.
Fire crews from Yeovil were called to the ground floor flat at 4.47am. A fire brigade spokesman said the cause could be malicious.
Fire crews spent four hours fighting a blaze in a thatched property near Chard last night. Crews were called to The Forge in Chaffcombe at 10.42pm.
Around a third of the thatched roof was affected. Units from seven Somerset towns attended. An investigation into the cause takes place today.
