Two fire appliances from the town and the gas detector from Barnstaple were called to the incident in Brecon Close, East-the-Water at around 2pm.

Crews used breathing apparatus to enter the terraced home and surveyed the property using a gas analyser. They advised the occupant to arrange for a gas engineer to attend.
