Location: Fore Street, Langtree
Fire control received a call reporting a property on fire at the above location earlier this evening.
Fire engines from Torrington, Bideford, Holsworthy and an Aerial Ladder Platform from Exeter were quickly mobilised. Upon arrival, crews reported to Control that there were clouds of thick black smoke issuing from the property.
4 x breathing apparatus, 1 x hose reel jet and a safety jet were used by fire crews to tackle the fire which was located in the ground and first floor of the detached property. Crews soon made up for a Fire investigation officer to attend and requested the attendance of a vet as two Labradoodle dogs were rescued from within the property.
The fire was successfully extinguished and crews are revisiting the property in the morning. Further details on this incident will follow once the revisit has been conducted.
