Crews attend fire at school

High Street, Yatton

We were called to reports of a fire at a school at 13:18.

Crews from across the Service were mobilised to the incident and on arrival found a significant fire affecting the school site.

Over the course of the afternoon, crews from Clevedon, Weston, Blagdon, Nailsea, Avonmouth, Kingswood, Temple, Yate, Portishead and Bedminster attended the scene. 

The area was sectorised, with nine fire engines, two turntable ladders and a command unit all in attendance at the height of the incident. 

Firefighters wore breathing apparatus and used 45mm jets and high pressure hose reels to extinguish the fire. 

Crews remain on the scene damping down the area. 

The High Street was closed for some time by Police colleagues to allow for crews to work safely at the scene, but has since reopened. 

Following fire investigation on 30/5/2023, the cause of the fire is thought to be accidental.
