Stove catches fire at home

EMERGENCY crews were called to a Torquay home after receiving reports of a fire.

Initial reports suggested a stove at the home on Ann St caught fire about 12.15pm Monday.

A fire station officer said the thickness of smoke caused by the fire made the blaze seem much bigger than it was.
