Fire crews from Torquay and Paignton were mobilised to a report of a fire in the bedroom at a property at the above location.

The incident involved a fire in the first floor bedroom of a 2 storey end of terraced property. Crews used 2 breathing apparatus, 1 hose reel jet and a safety jet to extinguish the fire, which started accidentally, before using a positive pressure ventilation fan and thermal imaging camera to clear the property of smoke and check for hotspots. Once satisfied that the fire was out and scene made safe, duty of care was left with the occupants. There were no casualties and damage, albeit severe by fire, smoke and water, was contained to the bedroom.
