TWO local fire crews and the aerial ladder from Barnstaple were called to deal with a third floor fire in Ilfracombe High Street last night (Tuesday).

When they arrived just after 9pm, fire fighters found smoke coming from a window and donned breathing apparatus to investigate.

Fortunately the small fire was confined to the kitchen in a flat and was soon extinguished, with a ventilation fan used to clear the smoke.
