Fire crews were called to Crediton yesterday after multiple calls from the village of Cheriton Fitzpaine as residents could see a workshop on fire.

Three fire appliances were mobilised, two from Crediton and one from Tiverton to Cheriton Fitzpaine, Crediton at 18:02.

Crews found a garden shed well alight and used a compressed air foam jet and two hose reel jets to extinguish the fire.

Two propane cylinders were involved in the fire and crews cooled the cylinders with water.
