An accidental fire prompted an early morning call out for fire crews after a hay baler caught fire.
The fire service was called at 4.02am on Monday, July 15, after reports of a hay baler alight within an agricultural barn.
Fire engines from Ottery St Mary and Sidmouth and a water bowser from Danes Castle were sent to an address in Higher Metcombe.
Crews arrived to find a baler in a yard with smoke issues.
They extinguished it using a hose reel jet and small tools.
A fire service spokesman said: "There was 10 per cent damage by fire and the cause of the fire was accidental."
