Crews from Southmead, Patchway and Temple fire stations were called to a fire in a semi-detached house after a builder working on the adjacent property noticed smoke coming from the building.
Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus entered the house, as it was believed an elderly gentleman was inside. Tragically during a search of the property the body of a man was found.
The fire was well developed in the downstairs of the property and firefighters used two hose reels and one jet to tackle the blaze.
A fire investigation into the cause of the fire was immediately launched and is ongoing working alongside colleagues from Avon & Somerset Constabulary.
