Accidental commercial property fire

Filton Road, Horfield

Crews from Temple, Southmead and Patchway fire stations were called to a commercial property fire. 

On arrival, firefighters used two high-pressure hose reels and two 45mm jets to tackle the fire. They also used two breathing apparatus for safety. 

They then used a thermal imaging camera to check for hotspots and a positive pressure ventalation fan to clear smoke from the property. 

Residents in the flats above were evacuated prior to the arrival of crews. 

The cause is thought to be accidental.
