Firefighters confirm that the blaze was started deliberately.

A fire engine from Bideford attended a shed fire in the back garden of a property at Barton Tors, East the Water, on Saturday (September 16) at around 4pm

The crews extinguished the blaze, which completely destroyed the shed, using a hose reel jet, a safety jet, a thermal imaging camera and drag forks.

A ground floor window pane of the property was also affected and cracked due to the heat from the fire.

The cause of the fire has been determined as deliberate.
