Mobility scooter fire at Weston residential block

Lonsdale Avenue, Weston-super-Mare

Crews attended a fire involving a mobility scooter at a residential block and when firefighters arrived they found the vehicle well alight in the doorway of the three storey building.

Firefighters in breathing apparatus used one high pressure hose reel to extinguish the fire. The smoke from the fire affected all floors of the building which required crews to use a vetilation fan.

One 43 year old male was rescued by fire crews and treated on scene for smoke inhalation. Another man was also treated for smoke inhalation.

The fire is believed to have been started deliberately.
