A CONSERVATORY suffered fire damage when wheeled bins caught alight next to a property in Teignbridge earlier today (Friday).

A fire crew from Exeter dealt with the blaze at Tedburn St Mary after the alarm was raised just before 9.30am.

A spokesman at brigade headquarters in Clyst St George said an estimated three square metres of the extension suffered fire damage.

He added that the fire had been extinguished before firefighters arrived. The crew examined the damage and confirmed there had been no further spread of the fire.
