Electrical fire sparks early morning alarm

Fuse box fire spread to roof timbers

A HOUSE in Witheridge was spared serious damage after firefighters dealt with a small blaze in an outbuilding in the early hours Saturday morning.

Crews from Witheridge, Chulmleigh and Tiverton were called to the address in East Close at 3.30am following reports of a fuse box fire and smouldering roof timbers.

Crews cut away plasterboard to gain access to isolate the electrics and remove timbers.

No-one was hurt in the incident.
