Heavy rain left a Somerset home flooded last night (Sunday).
Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service were called to a house in Burnham-on-Sea to deal with the incident.
The emergency service received a 999 call just after 10pm, amid reports a house in College Street was partially underwater.
A spokesman for the fire service said a leak was to blame for failing to stop rainwater entering the property.
The spokesman said: “The fire service was called to reports of flooding within a property.
“The fire control mobilised one appliance from Burnham to attend this incident.
“Upon arrival crews confirmed water was entering via a sky light.
“The flooding was due to local weather conditions.”
