Ideford chalet fire victim suffers severe burns

A man has suffered severe burns in a chalet fire in east Devon.

Four fire crews - from Newton Abbot, Torquay, Teignmouth and Totnes - were called to the blaze at Town's End Farm in Ideford, near Chudleigh, at about 04:20 GMT.

The fire, described as severe, also spread to outbuildings and nearby cars, Devon and Somerset Fire Service said.

The man, who lived in the chalet, managed to get livestock out of a stable before being taken to hospital.

About 25 firefighters were involved at the height of the blaze.
