Dartmouth couple and dog escape from River Dart boat fire

Two people and a dog have escaped from a fire which destroyed their boat at Kingswear on the River Dart.
For the second time in a week, fire crews had to use the Dartmouth lower ferry to tackle the blaze.

The fire on the 25ft (7m) Bayliner started just after 23:00 GMT, Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service said.
The couple were treated on shore by paramedics, before being taken to hospital as a precaution. They are not thought to have been seriously hurt.
Andy Callan, crew manager at Dartmouth fire station, said when crews arrived on the scene there was a dense smoke plume and the boat, Blue Storm, was “burning ferociously from end to end”.
