More than a dozen firefighters tackle house blaze
MORE than a dozen firefighters battled an early-hours blaze that broke out in a moorland village.
Emergency services were called to Wotter at around 5am yesterday, as flames took hold in the living room of a terraced house.
Three pumps, from Plympton, Crownhill and Greenbank, were sent to the end-of-terrace building at a row of houses known as Dartmoor Cottages.
Two firefighters donned breathing apparatus to tackle the fire, which had broken out in a downstairs living room.

Crews also used a hose reel jet to extinguish the flames, which they said damaged about a third of the room.
The property was completely smoke-logged, a Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said, causing significant damage throughout the two-storey house.
Firemen used a positive pressure ventilation fan in an attempt to clear the bulk of the smoke.
Crews said nobody was injured in the fire, whose cause is yet to be established.
