Firefighters were called to a deal with a fire at the Star Inn, Honiton, this morning (Saturday).

The incident at the New Street pub, which is owned by J D Wetherspoon, occurred at around 8.30am.

Two fire crews from Honiton dealt with the fire.

A spokesman for Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service said: “On arrival crews confirmed that there was a fire within an electrical heater, which had also spread to a timber joist.

“Crews cut away part of the ceiling to gain access and used small tools and a thermal imaging camera. The cause was accidental.”

The pub has been re-opened for business.
