THREE fire crews were sent to a kitchen fire in Uffculme this morning.

Crews from Cullompton, Tiverton and Middlemore were called to a property in Highland Park shortly before 10am.

It was reported that the alarm was sounding and smoke had filled the property.

On arrival, crews found there was a small fire in the ground floor kitchen involving an electrical feed and gas supplied cooker.

They isolated the gas and electric and used one hose reel to extinguish the fire.

They made the cooker and surrounding area safe.
