Three fire engines called to Saturday lunchtime blaze

Two caravans were destroyed in a fire at Woolacombe Sands Holiday Park today (Saturday).

Called to reports of a caravan on fire, two Ilfracombe fire crews discovered both alight and quickly sent for the water bowser from Barnstaple plus another engine from Braunton.

Fire fighters donned breathing apparatus and retrieved five gas cylinders from the fire to prevent explosions.

The cause of the blaze is thought to be accidental.
