Crews extinguish fire at supermarket

High Street, Nailsea

A fire in the holding bay of a supermarket was dealt with by firefighters.

When crews arrived on scene they found a fire affecting the outside of the building and spreading to an internal area. Fortunately the sprinkler system inside had activated, meaning minor smoke and fire damage inside.

Two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used two high pressure hose reels and a 45mm jet to put the fire out.

An investigation into the cause of the fire is underway.
