The blaze at the property in Scalwell Lane took place on Wednesday morning (April 15).

Initially firefighters from Seaton and Colyton went to the scene.

Upon arrival the crews requested assistance from a further three crews to tackle the ‘well developed’ fire.

An aerial ladder platform from Exeter was also called to the scene in order to attack the flames from above.

A Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said that unfortunately, the bungalow was severely damaged by the fire before crews were able to extinguish it.

Using breathing apparatus, firefighters worked to ensure neighbouring buildings were protected from the spread of the flames.

No-one is understood to have been hurt and the cause of the fire is being investigated
