Crews tackle severe house fire

Holly Green, Kingswood

Fire engine at incidentFirefighters dealt with a severe fire in a two-storey property which flashed-over twice.

When crews arrived they found the property well alight with the fire on the ground floor spreading to the upper floor and heavy smoke-logging to the property and neighbouring homes.

Fortunately, no one was inside at the time and no one was hurt. Six firefighters in breathing apparatus used two high pressure hose reels and a 45mm jet to extinguish the fire. The property was ventilated using a positive pressure ventilation fan.

An investigation into the cause of the fire is underway.
