Crews tackle fire outside courts

Kennedy Way, Yate

Two fire engines from Yate were called in to tackle a fire which involved the entrance to a Magistrates Courts.

Firefighters were alerted to the blaze which was affecting the porch and canopy of the site. A team of two firefighters in breathing apparatus used a high pressure hose reel to extinguish the fire. Crews prevented the fire from spreading inside the building but needed to ventilate the property using a fan to clear smoke.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the police and fire service.
