Void pub catches fire

Greystoke Avenue, Southmead, Bristol

Firefighters tackled a fire involving a large pile of rubbish outside a public house, which had been boarded up.

When crews arrived they found a large fire and quickly set to work getting water on to the fire using two 45mm jets and one high pressure hose reel.

Two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus entered the premises to ensure the fire had not spread inside.

Fortunately, no one was hurt.

An investigation into the cause of the fire is underway.
