Commercial property fire involving sunbed

Two Mile Hill Road, St George

Crews from Temple, Kingswood and Hicks Gate fire stations were called to a fire involving a stand-up sunbed in a commercial property. 

On arrival, four firefighters in breathing apparatus used one high-pressure hose reel to extinguish the fire. 

They also used a positive pressure ventilation fan to clear smoke from the property and a thermal imaging camera to check for hotspots. 

One casualty from a residential flat above self-rescued and was treated by ambulance crews. 

The cause is thought to be accidental.
