Woman dies following property fire

Meadow Villas, Weston-super-Mare

Crews from Weston and Yatton fire stations were mobilised to reports of a fire in which a female sadly died. 

On arrival, crews found a fire on the ground floor of the property.

Crews used four breathing apparatus for safety and one 45mm jet to extinguish the fire.

They also used a positive pressure ventilation fan to clear smoke from the property.

Sadly, one female casualty was declared deceased at the scene. 

Police and ambulance were also in attendance and the cause is thought to be deliberate.

Our thoughts go out to her family and friends at this time.
