Fire at recycling centre dealt with

Carsons Road, Mangotsfield

Crews were alerted to reports of a fire at a waste and recycling centre by a series of 999 calls from members of the public.

Firefighters from Kingswood, Bedminster, Brislington and Temple fire stations attended the 50m x 20m building from which smoke was seen coming from.

Four firefighters in breathing apparatus entered the building in an effort to identify the source of the smoke. During their search the crews found a fire involving a pile of waste within the building. A main water jet was used to extinguish the fire before crews worked to ventilate the building.

It’s though the fire started accidentally.
