Crews mobilised to fire in three-floor property

Nelson Parade, Bedminster

Crews from Temple and Bedminster responded to a fire, persons reported in a property of three floors at 03:07. 

On arrival, the fire was found on the ground floor of the property which is for commercial use, but currently empty.

With two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus, crews also used one high pressure high reel and one 45mm covering het to extinguish the fire, before using a positive pressure ventilation fan to clear smoke.  All persons were accounted for.

Crews also conducted Home Fire Safety Visits at the neighbouring properties.

The cause of the fire is thought to be accidental ignition involving a large refuse container.
