Crews called to kitchen fire

Honiton Road, Speedwell

Crews from Kingswood and Temple fire stations were called to a small kitchen fire on the ground floor of a residential property.  

Two firefighters in breathing apparatus used one high-press hose reel and one 45mm jet to extinguish the fire. 

They also used a positive pressure ventilation fan to clear smoke from the property. 

Ambulance crews were also in attendance and all persons were accounted for. 

The cause of the fire is thought to be accidental and firefighters remained on scene to provide safety advice to neighbouring properties.
