Warne Road, Weston-super-Mare

a fire engine leaving a station in response to an emergency callTwo fire engines from Weston-super-Mare Fire Stations responded to an incident at commercial premises where approximately 40 truck tyres were on fire.

One firefighter wore breathing apparatus for safety, and crews used one water jet and one foam jet to tackle the fire, which was well alight.

They then spent around 20 minutes damping down, to make sure the fire was completely out and would not re-ignite.

Crews were detained at the scene for more than an hour, and the fire is thought to have been started deliberately.
