Fire Crews attend generator fire at Rumwell Farm Shop

Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service have been called out to a fire at Rumwell Farm Shop, Wellington Road, Rumwell.

They were called out at 11:24 to deal with a diesel generator that had set alight at the back of the building and was attached to the back of the shop. There were concerns that the fire could transfer to the main shop building.

Two fire appliances attended from Wellington and used Hose Reel Jets, Foam Jets, Breathing Apparatus & Thermal imaging cameras.

There are no reports of any persons injured and we are lead to believe that the A38 remains open.

Fire Crews are still in attendance at the time of posting this story.
