Fire crews were called to a blaze in St Thomas, Exeter at 9:41am this morning after members of the public alerted them to a garage on fire.

Two pumps from Middlemoor and Danes Castle were mobilised to attend the incident, and a third appliance was also required due to the increased calls from the public.

Four breathing apparatus, 2 hose reel jets and a covering jet were used to control the fire and an ambulance was requested to assist one minor casualty at the incident suffering from smoke inhalation.

A fourth appliance was requested for increased manpower as fire had spread to eaves of adjoining property. Six breathing apparatus, a short extension ladder, a roof ladder and a thermal imaging camera were used in total to bring fire under control.
