Fire at scrapyard

Severn Road, Hallen

Crews from Avonmouth, Patchway and Portishead were called to a fire at a scrapyard.

Six firefighters in breathing apparatus used two 45ml jets, two high pressure hose reels and 25 litres of foam to extinguish the fire, before damping down the area.

A total of 19 cars were destroyed by the fire on the site.  The cause of the fire is thought to be accidental.
