Firefighters tackle electrical sign fire

Avon Meads, St Philips Causeway

Crews from Temple and Hicks Gate fire stations were called to a 20-meter electrical sign fire after smoke was seen issuing from the roof of a cinema.

Firefighters used a turntable ladder, two high-pressure hose reels, one 45mm jet and small gear to extinguish the fire.

They also used thermal imaging cameras to check for hotspots.

The cause of the fire is thought to be accidental and Western Power, the police and ambulance service were also in attendance.
