Firefighters battled a blaze at the thatched cottage in a village near Calne overnight.
A number of fire crews were sent to the scene in Heddington at 9.30pm on Wednesday evening, including the operational control unit from Swindon and various senior fire officers.
The incident lasted around 13 hours, with the last fire engine (from Chippenham) leaving the scene at around 9.30am.
The cause of the blaze is not yet known, but it’s not thought to have been deliberate.
The owner of the home was in good spirits this morning as he assisted the fire service with their work at the scene as they checked the property for hot spots using thermal imaging cameras.
Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service is asked motorists to avoid the Heddington area whilst they dealt with the incident, but the area is now open as usual.
