Scrapyard fire tackled by crews

Fishponds Trading Estate, Bristol

Firefighters have extinguished a fire involving up to 10 cars at a scrapyard on Fishponds Trading Estate.

Crews from four fire engines and a turntable ladder tackled the fire close to Rose Green Road in Bristol.

Firefighters from Southmead, Kingswood, Temple and Bedminster fire stations were sent to the scene after a number of emergency calls were received from members of the public.

Three main jets were used to tackle the fire which is believed to have involved 10 cars and a caravan at the scrapyard. The fire, which is thought to have started accidentally, caused a large plume of smoke which was visible across the city.

There were no reports of any injuries.
