Fire fighters were called to Knowle, near Braunton, in the early hours of this morning to reports of a garage on fire.

Crews from Braunton and Barnstaple arrived at Manor Mill Road shortly before 3am to find the garage, attached to the house, was well alight.

Fire fighters used two hose reel jets to extinguish the fire, while wearing four breathing apparatus sets.

Despite their efforts, the contents and structure of the garage were severely damaged.

The cause of the fire was accidental.
