Update following small fire at Sandy Park

Sandy Park remains fully open for business despite a small kitchen fire at the venue overnight.

Firefighters from the Devon and Somerset Fire Service were called to the stadium in the early hours of this morning following the fire, which was restricted to just an office in the downstairs kitchen area.

The fire, which has caused minor smoke damage, was safely extinguished and no persons were injured during the incident.

Exeter Rugby Club chairman and chief executive, Tony Rowe OBE, said: "Despite the fire, the Sandy Park kitchen remains fully operational and will have no effect on the business or any planned events taking place at the venue either today or in the coming days."
