A motorist has been arrested on suspicion of arson after a car crashed into a house and burst into flames.
The vehicle and the property were both on fire after the incident along the A38 road in Bodmin, Cornwall, on Sunday evening.
Pictures taken after the crash show the burnt-out remains of the car and the home.
The photos show the roof of the house burned away, leaving charred beams and smoke-damaged walls.
The occupants of the property were quickly evacuated after the crash, along with a number of dogs, while the driver of the vehicle was taken to Derriford Hospital in Plymouth, Devon.
The 27-year-old driver, who suffered a broken arm, was later arrested on suspicion of arson with intent, police said.
He has been released on police bail and remains in hospital.
The driver, from Bodmin, was initially trapped in the car by the fire but was freed before police arrived at the scene.
In a statement, Devon and Cornwall Police said: "We received a call from a member of the public stating that there had been a collision where a single vehicle had collided into a house causing the car and house to catch fire, trapping the driver in the process.
