Loft fire prompts multi-crew response

Narroways Road, Eastville

Multiple crews from across the service area were called to a loft fire in a residential property.

Crews from Temple, Patchway, Southmead, Avonmouth and Pill fire stations all attended the incident.

Eight firefighters in breathing apparatus used two high-pressure hose reels and three 45mm jets to tackle the fire.

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

The cause of the fire is thought to be accidental.
