Fire fighters tackle Umberleigh fire

HALF of an Umberleigh home was left smoke damaged following a fire on Sunday.

Fire crews from South Molton and Barnstaple were called out at around 1.45pm after an automatic fire alarm went off and had to force entry into the property, where they discovered a fire in the kitchen.

Two fire fighters donned breathing apparatus and two hose reels were used to put out the fire.
