Crews mobilised to flat fire

Gloucester Road, Horfield

We were called at 19:24 to a fire in the kitchen of a first floor flat on Gloucester Road, Horfield.

Crews from Temple and Southmead fire stations attended the incident and two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used a high pressure hose reel to extinguish the fire.  They also used a positive pressure ventilation fan to clear the smoke.

We were joined at the scene by ambulance colleagues who treated one male casualty for smoke inhalation.

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