Fire crews from across North Devon were called to a garage fire in Braunton yesterday evening (Thursday).

Applicances from Braunton, Barnstaple, Ilfracombe and South Molton were called to The Fairway, near Saunton Road, shortly after 5pm.

When crews arrived the garage, which was attached to a house, was well alight.

They extinguished the fire using six breathing apparatus, two hose reel jets, a main jet, safety jet and three thermal imaging cameras.

It is believed the garage was 60 per cent damaged by the fire, and received 80 per cent smoke damage.

Care was handed back to the occupier once the incident was made safe.
