Brislington Retail Park, Brislington, Bristol

Fire engine outside bedstoreFirefighters have dealt with a fire in the front of a bed store on a retail park.

When crews arrived on the scene smoke and flames were billowing from the front of the Bensons for Beds store.

Six firefighters wearing breathing apparatus tackled the fire from the front of the building using two 45 mm jets and a high pressure hose reel. Crews searched a neighbouring shop to see if the fire had spread.

Fortunately, the fire was contained to the bed shop and no one was hurt.

The Aerial Rescue Pump (ARP) from Patchway Fire Station was used to inspect the roof of the building, along with thermal imaging cameras, to determine if there was further fire spread into the premises.

An investigation into the cause of the fire is set to get underway shortly.
