|Location:||George Nympton Road, South Molton|
Two appliances from South Molton and Barnstaple stations were mobilised following a call to a carbon monoxide alarm sounding at the above address.
On arrival crews set to work using a gas detector and wearing two breathing apparatus sets. The gas detector showed there was carbon monoxide within the property, so crews ventilated with the help of a positive pressure ventilation fan. Advice was given to the occupant of the property to turn off the appliances in the house and have them tested as soon as possible.
