Firefighters responded to a fire alarm at East Devon District Council and a small fire in Newton Poppleford.

Sidmouth fire crews were called out twice to two separate incidents in the space of as many days.

On Sunday night, both Sidmouth fire engines attended a shout at Knowle after an automat fire alarm went off.

The firefighters found no fire after completing a search of the premise. Building keyholders were called and the alarm was reset.

On Monday, crews responded to reports of a small fire at Newton Poppleford playing fields.

The crew found a discarded barbeque smoking next to a bin and extinguished the fire with buckets of water.

It follows a busy weekend for the fire station which attended six callouts at the weekend.
