FIRE crews have been called out to two separate car fires today (Mon). The first, at Meadowside in Ashford, Barnstaple, occurred at around 10.30am. A crew from Barnstaple used a hose reel jet and breathing apparatus to extinguish the fire, which left the vehicle severely damaged. Then at 2.40pm, two fire engines from Combe Martin and Ilfracombe were scrambled to a car fire in Long Lane, Combe Martin. The vehicle was also severely damaged as crews used two hose reel jets to put out the flames. Both fires were believed to have been caused accidentally.
