Three fire crews called to Sun day morning blaze.

Three fire crews were called to a summerhouse on fire at a home in Chittlehampton this morning (Sunday).

One fire appliance from South Molton and two from Barnstaple found the eight metre square garden building well alight when they arrived at the East Street residence just after 7.30am.

Four fire fighters donned breathing apparatus and used a hose plus a foam jet to extinguish the flames, which had severely damaged the summerhouse.

The cause of the fire is thought to be accidental.
