Crews mobilised to house fire

Dovercourt Road, Horfield

We were called at 13:16 to a house fire on Dovercourt Road, Horfield.

Crews from Temple and Patchway attended the scene and found the kitchen, of a two-storey end of terrace house, on fire.

Firefighters in breathing apparatus used two hose reel jets and a 45mm jet to extinguish the fire, before using a thermal imaging camera to check for hotspots and using a positive pressure ventilation fan to clear smoke.

The cause of the fire is thought to be accidental ignition.
