Quick-thinking crews helped the lizard to recovery while colleagues tackled the flames shortly after 2.45pm.

A puppy also had a lucky escape from the property at Colwell Avenue, in Hucclecote, after fire broke out in the kitchen.

A spokesman for Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Service said: “The puppy was rescued and the bearded dragon suffered from smoke inhalation.

“Once on scene, they discovered a small fire in the house which they dealt with using one hose reel and four breathing apparatus.”

A total of ten firefighters from Cheltenham east and west stations spent around an hour at the property.
