This afternoon 8 fire engines and numerous special appliances and officers were sent to a house in Dolton after a call from the owner saying it was on fire and the roof had already fallen in.

After the arrival of the first 5 fire engines (Hatherleigh, Torrington, North Tawton, OKehampton and Holsworthy) and couple officers, everything else except the water bowser from Barnstaple were sent back to stations.

The 2 storey building measuring 12m by 12m used as a residential dwelling but currently under renovation had 100% of its thatch roof destroyed by fire.

All fire engines are coming away but there will be a revisit by Hatherleigh this evening to check on the hotspots that are still in the property.
