Fire service called to roof blaze in Newton Abbot
FIRE crews were called to a roof fire in Newton Abbot this evening (October 23).
Two crews from Newton Abbot were sent to a property at Court Grange, Abbotskerswell, at around 6pm, following a report of smoke issuing from a wall cavity.
A fire service spokesman said: "On arrival crews confirmed that there was smoke coming from a flat roof. "A small fire was found in the roof space of the garage which was attached to the house."
The fire involved the roof joists and the crew used small tools, a makita saw and thermal image camera to deal with the incident. A positive pressure ventilation fan was also used for ventilation purposes.
