Firefighters have been called to a blaze at a mobile home in St Austell, with reports of people trapped.

Crews from the town rushed to Buckler Village on Wednesday afternoon, to the fire involving a cooker.

They called in back-up from Fowey and teams wearing breathing gear went in to investigate.

No-one was inside, however firefighters managed to pull two dogs to safety just after 2pm.

A spokesperson from Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service said: "On receipt of this call, both appliances from St Austell were mobilised.

"On arrival there was found to be a fire involving a mobile home. The attending crew classified the incident as 'persons reported' and a further appliance from Fowey was mobilised".

They added that the fire involved a cooker: "Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus entered the mobile home with a high pressure hosereel jet to extinguish a fire.

"It was quickly established that there were no persons within the property, but Cornwall Fire & Rescue personnel rescued two dogs".
