No drama in Braunton airing cupboard

AN overzealous Braunton airing cupboard tried to cook its owners laundry rather than dry it after fire broke out early on Saturday morning.

Luckily the 5.45am fire at the home in Willoughby Lane was only small and had been confined to the electrical insulation in the airing cupboard.

Fire crews from Braunton and Barnstaple it was out on arrival but checked for hot spots using thermal imaging cameras.
