THREE fire engines were called to a furniture mill in South Molton on Saturday after reports of a chipboard fire within a building.
Upon arrival crews from South Molton and Barnstaple found the large Norbord building containing a heavily smoke-logged furnace.
Crews arrived at 2.20pm and used breathing apparatus, a thermal imaging camera and a hose reel jet to combat the fire.
The fire was extinguished and crews ventilated the property while waiting for the sprinkler system to be isolated.
