Police, ambulance and fire services attended the incident.

Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service were called at 1.51am and sent a fire engine from Bampton, one from Wellington and a water foam carrier from Danes Castle.

The ambulance service was requested and a woman was treated on scene for smoke inhalation.

Police also attended the fire - as the cause was believed to be deliberate.

The fire crews extinguished the fire using a hose reel jet and used a thermal imaging camera to check for hotspots.
