Crews called to deliberate rubbish fire

Long Cross, Lawrence Weston

Crews from Avonmouth and Patchway were mobilised to reports of a fire. 

On arrival, crews found a wheelie bin and rubbish fire affecting the property.

Firefighters used one high pressure hose reel to extinguish the fire and a thermal imaging camera to check for hotspots.

They also used a positive pressure ventilation fan to check for hotspots.

Police were also in attendance and the cause is thought to be deliberate.
