FIRE fighters were called out to two kitchen fires in Bideford on Christmas Day (Weds).

The first callout came at around 12.50pm in Clovelly Close, with reports of a smoke coming from a window.

Crews found there has been a small fire involving a saucepan left on the hob in the kitchen.

Then at 2.20pm, there was a callout from a house in Meeting Street stating there was a fire in the kitchen and the house had been evacuated.

Three fire engines from Bideford and Appledore were called to the scene and found a fire in the ground floor kitchen.

They set to work extinguishing the fire using two breathing apparatus sets, a hose reel jet and a main jet.
