Two fire engines spent more than two hours extinguishing the fire.
FIRE crews spent several hours combating a chimney fire at a cottage at Oare near Lynton last night (Thursday).
A fire engine from Porlock was called to the scene at 8.30pm, which requested a second crew to attend on arrival.
A second fire engine came from Lynton after reports that the building was beginning to crack.
Crews got to work from the roof and fought the fire from the hearth, removing plasterwork to investigate the fire with a thermal imaging camera.
