Crews tackle kitchen fire

Hillcrest Road, Nailsea

A fire in the kitchen of a house was dealt with by firefighters.

There were reports that someone was inside the property so four firefighters in breathing apparatus searched the house, but fortunately all persons were accounted for.

Two high pressure hose reels were used to extinguish the fire and a positive pressure ventilation fan was used to clear the smoke. It’s thought the fire started accidentally and a Home Fire Safety Visit was carried out at the property.
