A SHED fire spread rapidly to a house and a car.

Fire crews were sent to the blaze in Elm Avenue, Burnham-on-Sea shortly after 1pm yesterday (Monday).

Several calls were made to the Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service control room saying the fire had spread.

A service spokesman said: "On arrival crews confirmed the fire had indeed spread to a car and house.

"Crews extinguished the fire using two main jets, one hose reel jet and a positive pressure fan.

"The shed was totally destroyed and there was 25 per cent fire, 50 per cent heat and 100 per cent smoke damage to the kitchen of the property. The cause of the fire was accidental."
