FIRE crews from across North Devon tackled a blaze in Swimbridge at the weekend after a fire in a warehouse spread to the roof of the building.

Fire fighters from Barnstaple, Bideford, South Molton and Bideford were called to the scene in Barnstaple Hill after the alarm was raised around 2pm on Saturday.

The building was a home and warehouse and it is thought the fire started in the warehouse and spread to the roof of the attached property.

The warehouse was destroyed by the fire and there has been significant damage to the roof of the home.

Fire crews managed to salvage the first floor of the property. They used three hoses to put the fire out.

It is not clear what caused the fire, but no one was injured in the incident.
