A bungalow in Small Dole has been damaged following a fire at the home yesterday (Saturday November 1).
It is believed the bungalow was not occupied when the blaze broke out.
The A2037 Shoreham Road in the village, which is near Henfield, has been blocked in both directions between the New Hall Lane junction and the Nep Town Road junction.
West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service said their first appliance arrived at the scene a few minutes after the alarm was raised.
The blaze was brought under control by firefighters.
