Crews called to property fire

North Walk, Yate

We were called to repors of a fire at 01:15.

On arrival, crews from Yate and Kingswood found a fire affecting a flat. 

WIth two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus, crews used two high pressure hose reels to extinguish the fire. 

Also in use were gas monitors and thermal imaging cameras to check the scene's safety as well as a positive pressure ventilation fan for smoke clearance. 

Whilst in attendance, crews were able to locate the owner's cat which had been unaccounted for and reunite them. 

The cause of the incident is thought to have been accidental ignition.
