Crews mobilised to roof fire

Manor Road, Weston-super-Mare

We were called at 01:56 to a fire in the roof space of a semi-detatched property on Manor Road, Weston-super-Mare.

Crews from Weston-super-Mare and Winscombe attened and used one high pressure hose reel and one 45mm jet to extinguish the fire, with two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus for protection. 

Crews also used positive pressure ventilation fans to clear smoke.

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