Bishport Avenue, Hartcliffe



Crews from Bedminster, Temple, Hicks Gate, Southmead, Chew Magna and Kingswood attended a fire in a biomass boiler, in an 11-storey block of flats on Bishport Avenue in Hartcliffe.


On arrival crews found the fire in the ground floor boiler room. Crews isolated the boiler, before using two firefighters in breathing apparatus and two high pressure hose reels to extinguish the fire. 


The cause of the fire is thought to be accidental.
