The fire service were called to reports of a fire at Dainton Quarry, Ipplepen just before 1am this morning (14 August)

Three fire engines from Newton Abbott, Totnes and Torquay were mobilised to the incident.

On arrival crews confirmed the building was well alight and asked for a water carrier to proceed to the incident.

Crews were unable to gain access to the building and had to wait for a keyholder, but continued to work fighting the fire defensively due to possible Acetylene cylinders inside the building.

Update-
Crews have stopped the fire.

It was a single storey building approx 30m x 30m used as a vehicle workshop 100% damaged by fire, 1 acetylene involved in fire.

Crews used 2 jets 1 thermal image camera and used water from water bowser.

The cause of the fire was accidental.
