A telegraph pole was also caught in the fire and this has affected residents in the Normandy area of St Mary's.

As you might be aware Angela Jenkins lives and runs to the farm with the help of her son Chris and his partner Zoe Parry, the Managing Director/Editor of Radio Scilly.

Zoe joined Will in the studio to talk about the fire and to thank the community for its support during this difficult time.
