A farmhouse was saved by fast work from fire crews as a barn burned in the South Hams on Saturday (May 28).
The farmhouse near Staverton was just two and a half metres from the barn which caught fire on Saturday morning.
Firefighters from ten stations were needed to tackle the burning barn which was 25 metres by 30 metres large.
Three fire engines and a water bowser were initially sent from Buckfastleigh, Bovey Tracey, Totnes and Danes Castle.
Once they arrived crews immediately asked to make pumps six and water bowsers two as there were no water supplies in the area.
