Two labradoodles were rescued by fire fighters from clouds of thick black smoke after an early evening fire at a house in Langtree.

Fire engines from Torrington, Bideford, Holsworthy and the aerial ladder platform from Exeter were sent to the detached house in Fore Street at around 6.05pm on Thursday, October 24.

They found thick clouds of smoke and eight crew members donned breathing apparatus to tackle a fire found on the ground and first floor of the property.

The two dogs were rescued from inside and a vet was called to attend.

The fire service said the dogs are now safe and well after being given oxygen at the scene.
