Homes have been badly damaged after a huge fire in Plymouth.

Crews from Crownhill and Plympton were called to Elford Street, after the blaze spread to a neighbouring house.

Teams called in an extra pump as back-up on Tuesday night, after a string of 999 calls.

They wore breathing kit and used high-pressure hoses and jets to douse the flames, after the blaze broke out just before 9pm.

A spokesperson from Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service said: "The Fire Service were called to numerous reports of a house fire on the above road. Local appliances from Crownhill and Plympton were mobilised to the incident.

"On arrival crews requested a further pump for manpower and breathing apparatus. They got to work using two breathing apparatus, one high pressure jet and one hose reel jet, crews also relayed water from a nearby hydrant.

"The fire was involving two neighbouring properties, both properties suffering 50% fire damage and 100% smoke damage".
