Crews mobilised to chimney fire

Bathurst Parade, Redcliff

We were called at 09:07 to reports of a chimney fire at a property on Bathurst Parade, Redcliff.

Crews from Temple and Bedminster fire stations attended the scene and found the fire had spread from the chimney into the loft space of the property and was affecting the roof.

Crews used two high pressure hose reels to extinguish the fire and used small gear and thermal imaging camera to check for hotspots.

Crews remained at the scene throughout the day to ensure all the identified hotspots had been cooled and addressed

The cause of the fire is thought to be accidental ignition.
