Workshop fire in Alveston

Gloucester Road, Rudgeway, Alveston

Crews were called to a fire in a single storey timber framed building used as a workshop on Gloucester Road in the Rudgeway area of Alveston.

Due to the location of the fire, crews set up a water relay and used a pump to boost the water pressure. Firefighters were then able to use two water jets to tackle the fire.

Three cylinders thought to be propane and acetylene were cooled in situ.

The building was completely destroyed by the fire however no other properties in the area were damaged. The cause of the fire is being investigated.

Four crews attended the incident from Southmead and Patchway as well as RDS firefighters from Thornbury,
