One fire appliance from Holsworthy, one from Hatherleigh, one from Bude and the Aerial Ladder Platform from Barnstaple were sent to a report of a fire within a store room at the above location.
On arrival crews confirmed a fire within an office and store measuring approximately 20 metres x 10 metres. The fire was contained to the office which was 50% damaged by fire and the rest of the building was damaged by heat. To deal with the incident crews used two breathing apparatus, one hose reel jet, a thermal image camera, a ceiling hook and a positive pressure ventilation fan.
The cause of the fire is believed to be accidental.
