Gas sets off Braunton carbon monoxide detector
GAS was discovered at a home in Braunton yesterday (Wednesday) after it triggered a carbon monoxide alarm.
A Fire crew from Braunton plus a crew and the gas detector from Barnstaple were called out to the domestic property in Abbotts Hill just after 7pm.
Fire fighters discovered a low gas reading on the first floor, ventilating the area and isolating the gas supply.
A representative from British Gas was called in to attend and advice provided by a Hazardous Materials and Environmental Protection Officer.
The fire service said the occupiers had all been out of the property when crews arrived.
