When they arrived on scene, close to the Bantham roundabout, they found a "small fire" in the hedge, caused by "fallen 11,000 volt overhead electrical cables".
The road was closed and livestock removed from nearby while Western Power Distribution isolated the power to the cables.
The crew are currently remaining on scene "until power has been isolated and the fire can be fully extinguished".
