Crews respond to grass fire

Lower Bristol Road, Twerton

Crews from Bath were called to reports of a grass fire at 13:47.

On arrival, crews found a fire on grass land further affecting an area of vegetation. 

Crews used grass beaters and hose reels to extinguish the fire.

Due to the fire's close proximity to the railway line, the track was closed for a time to allow crews to work.


The cause of the incident was thought to have been accidental ignition.
