Sidmouth’s fire crews were kept busy with five shouts over the weekend.
The first was at 12.48pm on Friday (April 7) when a resident spotted a car leaking petrol in Sid Vale Close. Absorbent pads were used to remove the fuel, the owner was found and the car was moved.
On Saturday, the crews conducted a lift rescue before two callouts to Lyme Road in Uplyme to help tackle an accidental fire in a three-storey home.
The blaze broke out just after 2am and over the next seven hours, 14 appliances were called out. The incident was scaled down but crews remained at the scene until 8pm to ensure the fire was fully extinguished.
Both Sidmouth pumps were called out at 8.50pm yesterday (Sunday) to Fire Beacon Lane to a fire in the open that could be seen from Woolbrook Road.
