Infant receives paramedic care after roadside fire near Monkleigh.
A baby was checked by paramedics for smoke inhalation after a car fire at Saltrens, Monkleigh yesterday (Saturday).
A fire crew from Bideford was called out at around 9.45pm to find a car on the roadway with a small fire in the engine compartment, thought to be the alternator.
Fire fighters used a hose jet to put out the fire, and police on scene requested an ambulance attend as a precaution as a baby in the car had possibly breathed in smoke.
