Electrical fault sparks fire

Ewart Road, Milton, Weston-super-Mare

Firefighters have tackled a fire in the roof of a house, which started after an electrical fault with a shower.

Two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus tackled the fire using one high pressure hose reel and one jet. They then used a thermal imaging camera to ensure the fire was fully out.

One person was treated at the scene by crews after suffering minor burns, but was not taken to hospital.

While at the scene firefighters carried out a Home Fire Safety Visit, fitting smoke detectors and giving fire safety advice.
