Crews called to accidental fire involving cannabis plants

Bathurst Road, Weston-super-Mare

At 05:03, crews from Weston, Winscombe & Yatton, along with a turntable ladder, were mobilised to a fire.

On arrival, crews confirmed the discovery of cannabis plants at the address and a fire on the fire floor of the property which had spread to the loft area.

Two firefighters in breathing apparatus extinguished the fire using two high-pressure hose reels and two 45mm jets.

Crews also used a thermal imaging camera to check for hotspots and Weston Power isolated power to the property.

The cause is thought to be accidental and police remain in attendance maintaining cordons.
