A spokesman for West Sussex Fire and Rescue said: “Durrington residents are advised to keep windows and doors closed to prevent heavy smoke from entering from a nearby house fire.
“Six pumps are currently present (as of 5pm) in this fire at a thatched cottage in Pond Lane.
“Pond Lane and other local roads are currently closed and we are advising people to avoid the area where possible due to heavy traffic congestion.
