The blaze broke out at Crook Dairy Farm at 11.29pm.

Two fire appliances from Honiton, one from Ottery St Mary and a water bowser from Danes Castle were mobilised to a barn on fire.

On arrival crews requested further backup from Middlemoor and Sidmouth, along with an incident command unit from Wiveliscombe.

The barn blaze was put out with hose reel jets, before the remaining hot spots were damped down.

Crews had used six breathing apparatus, three hose reel jets, one main jet, three ladders, a thermal imaging camera and a hydrant for water supply.

The cause of the fire was deemed to be accidental.
