Crews mobilised to lorry fire

Lorry fireWinterstoke Road, Weston-super-Mare

Crews from Weston, Avonmouth, Southmead and Winscombe fire stations were mobilised to reports of a fire.

On arrival, firefighters found a fire involving three refuse lorries.

Crews used nine breathing apparatus for safety, and two 45mm jets, one high pressure hose reel and 25 litres of foam to extinguish the fire.

Crews also used the hose layer from Southmead to shuttle water to the scene.

The cause is thought to be accidental and crews returned to the scene the following morning for a reinspection with thermal imaging cameras.
