Firefighters are once again on scene at Bolberry Down as a gorse fire has reignited.
Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service are on scene after the fire, which first ignited at the end of May, burst back into flames late at night on Wednesday night.
Prawle Point Coastguard Rescue Team announced that the section of the South West Coast Path along Bolberry has now been closed. They posted: "Due to an ongoing incident at Bolberry Down, the decision has been made to close a section of the coast path between the National Trust car park at Bolberry and Hope Cove.
"This has been done in the interest of public safety and the crews of Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service."
Kingsbridge Fire Station uploaded a video of the scene to their social media, warning that the conditions in the area were "very changeable" and people should keep their windows closed if they live nearby.
