Fire crews tackle Hatherleigh blaze

THREE fire crews have been tackling a house fire at South Street in Hatherleigh this afternoon (Wednesday.)

Two appliances from Hatherleigh and one from Okehampton were sent to the two storey mid terraced property just after 3.30pm.

They discovered the fire in the ground floor living room, three quarters of which was damaged by flames and the remainder suffered smoke damage.

Crews used two breathing apparatus, one hose reel and a positive pressure ventilation fan to clear the property of smoke. The cause of the fire has not been reported.
