Time: 18:44
Location: Farway, Devon
Area: Central
County: Devon

Appliances from Honiton, Colyton, Sidmouth, Ottery St Mary, Seaton and Middlemoor attended a fire involving a detached outhouse that was adjacent to a thatched property. On arrival crews confirmed the thatch not involved in the fire, but the shed was well alight.  Crews got to work putting the fire out using one hose reel jet, one compressed air foam jet, one main jet backed up from a street hydrant.

Crews then committed breathing apparatus wearers with a thermal imaging camera. Western Power engineers isolated the electricity to the building. The fire was extinguished and the cause was deemed to be accidental. The outbuilding was severely damaged in the fire.
