A large fire which spread across two homes in a Denbighshire village has caused major damage.

Five crews from Ruthin, Corwen, Mold, Denbigh and Wrexham were called to a blaze at Tan Y Bryn, Pwllglas, Ruthin at 4.14pm yesterday.

The fire caused 100% fire damage to the roof and first floor of one of the properties, as well as 100% water and smoke damage to ground floor.

It also caused 100% fire damage to a shed at the back of the second house, as well as 10% fire damage to the external fittings of the property and 20% smoke damage to the ground floor.

North Wales Fire and Rescue Service said its crews used six sets of breathing apparatus, four hose reel jets, one main jet, a thermal imaging camera and extension ladders to tackle the fire.

A spokeswoman said: “The cause of the fire is unknown but is thought to have spread from the rear garden of the first property.”
