Buckfastleigh Fire Station were called to a "number of vehicles" having caught fire opposite the Abbey Inn on Thursday, and then called to the recycling bins at Woodholne car park in the early hours of Friday morning.
Buckfastleigh Fire Station crews were called at around 11.25am to the storage yard opposite the Abbey Inn, Buckfastleigh, where large quantities of black smoke was causing disruption to traffic.
When they arrived on scene, a spokesperson for Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service said: "We were met with a gas cylinder which was inside one of the motor homes becoming involved, which rapidly escalated the incident.

They continued: "The officer in charge had two ground monitors setup and had crews retreat to a place of safety until we were able to Don 4 sets of breathing apparatus and fight the fire.
"Due to possible contaminated water running off the fire we also used environmental protection equipment on the drains to prevent contaminants entering the local water courses.
"Thank you to neighbouring properties for closing all doors and windows for the duration of the incident and thank you to all drivers who patiently waited and then drove over our hose protection ramps in a slow and careful manner."
Less than 24 hours later, at 1.50am on Friday, the crew was called to Woodholne car park where they found one of the cardboard bins well alight.
