Crews called to bedroom fire

School Close, Whitchurch

Crews from Hicks Gate, Southmead, Temple and Bedminster were mobilised to reports of a fire in a residential property.

On arrival, firefighters found a fire in the bedroom that had spread to the roof area.

Firefighters used six breathing apparatus for safety and three high pressure hose reels to extinguish the fire.

They also used three thermal imaging cameras to check for hotspots and a positive pressure ventilation fan to clear smoke from the property.

Police were also in attendance and the road was closed.

The cause is currently unknown and crews remained on scene to provide fire safety advice to neighbouring properties.
