A grassland fire at Bolberry Down that was battled by fire crews from four stations re-ignited overnight. 

Devon and Somerset Rescue Service was called at 4.30pm on Saturday, 28 June, to a cliff top fire at Bolberry Down. 

Fire crews and pumps from Kingsbridge, Kingston, Dartmouth and Totnes Fire Stations attended and battled the grass fire.

The returned the next day at 9am but found that the fire had re-ignited, so engines from Salcombe, Totnes, Brixham, and Dartmouth extinguished the fire again. They left the scene at 1.44pm.  

The cause of the fire was accidental.
