THREE fire engines were called to a fire at the Norbord factory in South Molton this afternoon.
Two fire engines from Barnstaple and one from South Molton arrived at the scene at 2.20pm to find a blaze in the furnace room.
The fire crews tackled the fire with having located it using breathing apparatus, a thermal imaging camera and extinguished it using a hose reel jet.
It was confirmed an oil pump had caught fire but no factory workers were injured and the furnace room was left with smoke damage.
The fire crews left after an hour and half having ventilated the building.
