Two fire appliances from Torquay and Paignton attended a property fire after a neighbour called fire control. All occupants were out of the property.

On arrival crews confirmed that there was a fire in the ground floor of the 2 storey semi detached property. Crews got to work with two breathing apparatus sets and one hose reel jet.

Fire crews used a positive pressure ventilation fan for smoke clearance and an ambulance was requested to check 3 children and 1 adult for smoke inhalation.

The fire involved the sofa and the property was 100% damaged by smoke. The lounge was 50% damaged by heat. No persons were conveyed to hospital. 1 Terrapin was rescued but unfortunately one cat was deceased.
