Crews called to kitchen fire in unoccupied flat

Windwhistle Circle, Weston-super-Mare

Firefighters in breathing apparatus forced entry to a first floor flat after the fire alarms activated.

Two crews from Weston-super-Mare attended the incident and once on scene found smoke coming from the flat. As they were unable to raise a response, two firefighters in breathing apparatus made their way inside to search for anyone who may be in the flat and locate the source of the smoke.

The property was found to be unoccupied and crews used a high pressure hose reel to extinguish a fire which started accidentally in the kitchen.
