A farm house in Devon managed to remain untouched by the flames of a barn fire just 2.5m away.

This is thanks to the work of crews from Buckfastleigh; Totnes; Bovey Tracey; Newton Abbot; Danes Castle; and Chagford fire stations.

"Initial crews did a fantastic job preventing the fire spreading to the farm house which was only 2.5m away from the barn," said Buckfastleigh Fire Station in a post on social media.

Buckfastleigh crews were called to the scene of the fire, which was near Ashburton, at 11:55a.m on Saturday (May 28).

"The occupier was incredibly helpful to crews using equipment and the passing of information including the whereabouts of cylinders within the barn," it added.

Water to extinguish the fire was supplied using the water browser which ferried water from the nearest hydrant to a dam situated at the fire ground.

Unfortunately, the barn was not as lucky as the house. Below are photos shared by Buckfastleigh Fire Station:

Totnes, Torquay and Paignton Fire Stations, which were called to this fire, also worked together last week on Thursday, May 26, to extinguish a tractor fire.

The fire was put out quickly, according to Totnes Fire Station, which was also mobilised to two fires on the moors last week.
