Phil said: "There is some damage but nothing compared to what it could have been."
Phil's wife Sharon added that Pepper is a law unto himself and has a fiery streak. "But all is forgiven now, " she said.
She said that neighbours also deserve credit.
Sharon said: "We are thankful that they did not just dismiss it as a bonfire. They rallied around and even directed the fire service here through the narrow lanes."
Pepper is still a bit spooked by his ordeal. "But he is still managing to eat plenty of food," said Sharon.
