BLAZE VICTIM: A man suffered burns when a fire broke out a garden shed in Exmouth.

Firefighters were called to a property in Bradham Lane on Friday evening and found a small fire had broken out in a detached shed. The crew put out the fire and gave first aid to a man at the scene.

A Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said the cause of the fire was thought to be accidental.
