TWO Withycombe residents were on Monday treated for smoke inhalation and shock by paramedics on Monday after a fire broke out at their Lovelace Crescent home.

Fire crews from Exmouth, Budleigh Salterton and Exeter were called to the property shortly before 4pm where they found a blaze involving an open fire had broken out in the ground floor living room.

Firefighters wore breathing apparatus and used one hose reel to fight the fire, and a ventilation fan to clear smoke from the property.

Some ten per cent of the end-of-terrace property was damaged by fire, and five per cent suffered smoke damage.
