Fire crews from Ottery St Mary, Middlemoor and Honiton tackled a barn fire at Coombelake in the early hours of this morning (Wednesday).

The barn, which contained hay and farming equipment, was well alight when crews arrived just before 1am.

Crews got to work to bring the fire under control, as well as evacuating animals from the building, and protect surrounding buildings.

The fire service received multiple calls from members of the public reporting the fire.

A water carrier from Danes Castle was also mobilised, as was a further pumping appliance from Honiton.

Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service said the incident was ongoing, and crews remain on the scene tackling the fire.

Honiton Fire Station said relief crews would be taking over this morning, as the incident would be ‘ongoing for some time’.
