Crews called to flat fire in Weston-super-Mare

Jasmine Way, Weston-super-Mare

We were called at 11:30 to a fire persons reported in a flat at Lakeside Court, Jasmine Way in Weston-super-Mare.

Crews from Weston-super-Mare and Yatton attended and found the fire in a flat on the second floor of the building of three floors.

Two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used one high pressure hose reel and one 45mm safety jet to extinguish the fire.

Sadly, one male casualty was declared deceased at the scene.  Our thoughts go out to his family and friends at this time.

We were joined at the scene by police and ambulance colleagues.

The cause of the fire is thought to be accidental ignition.
