We were called at 7.09am to a fire in the sauna of the leisure complex at Devon Hills Holiday Village in Paignton.
The building is over two floors measuring approximately 40m x 20m. Approximately 50% of the roof is involved in the fire.
We have more than ten fire engines at the scene, as well as a water bowser for extra water. We are using an aerial ladder platform as a water tower to fight the fire. We also have two main jets in use.
The A385 main Totnes road is down to one lane outside the park as are accessing a hydrant on the road. Please avoid this road if possible.
The main fire has been extinguished, crews are dampening down using breathing apparatus and water jets. Incident being scaled down to three pumping appliances, one aerial ladder platform and one water bowser.
Crews have left the scene, one appliance will revisit later this afternoon.
This was a two-storey building used as a leisure complex, the fire was located within the sauna area on the first floor, the fire spread to 40% of the property, the remainder of the building was damaged by smoke and heat. Accidental cause.
