Firefighters from across the county have been tackling a large blaze at a commercial building in Crediton overnight.

It started at around 9.30pm at the Crediton Milling Company at Fordton Mills. All staff were safely evacuated. 

On arrival, crews confirmed that smoke and flames were coming from the building and requested five additional fire engines, with the building and roof well alight.

Around 70 firefighters were at the site late last night, with the fire believed to have been brought under control just after midnight.

This morning, Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue have said: "Fire crews remain in attendance with two fire engines and an aerial ladder platform damping down hot spots, they will remain in attendance until fire investigation has been carried out this morning."
