Bristol night club fire

St Stephens Street, Bristol City Centre

Crews were called to a fire in the basement of a three storey building. The basement is used as a night club and bar with three floors above used as residential flats.

Fifteen firefighters in breathing apparatus used three high pressure hose reels and three jets to tackle the fire. Crews also used ventilation fans to clear the building of smoke.

Fifteen people were evacuated and were supported by the Red Cross emergency team to either, return to their homes, stay with friends or find alternative accommodation.

The fire caused extensive damage to the basement and the cause of the fire is being investigated.

Six crews attended the incident from Temple, Hicks Gate and Bedminster Fire Stations with a number of crews attending throughout the incident.
