Firefighters from Launceston have been helping to tackle a raging inferno at a Devon pallet yard.

The crew joined firefighters from across Devon after 1,000 wooden pallets and approximately 500 litres of fuel caught alight at Haye Down, between Chillaton and Tavistock late last night.

The fire broke out at 11.45pm spread to a number of buildings.

Firefighters spent three hours tackling the blaze and wore breathing apparatus and used hydraulic cutting equipment to enter the building.

Launceston firefighters left at 4.30am but crews remain at the scene dampening down any hotspots.
