Fire crews called to small under floor Ilfracombe blaze.

Three fire engines plus the aerial ladder from Barnstaple were called to a flat fire at Torrs Park on Saturday.

Two screws from the town and another from Woolacombe found a small fire involving under floor heating at the first floor flat, which was out when they arrived at the 11.30am incident.

Fire crews isolated the electricity supply and cut away remaining hot spots using small tools and a thermal image camera. The cause is believed to be accidental.
