Shed destroyed at community farm

Grimsbury Road, Kingswood, Bristol

A shed used as a plant nursery at a community farm has been destroyed by fire.

Crews from Kingswood and Speedwell fire stations were called to the incident which involved the eight metre by three metre building. When firefighters arrived on scene the shed was well alight.

Two jets and a high pressure hose reel were used to bring the blaze under control, although it completely destroyed the shed. The shed was standing alone in a field, so fire did not affect any other buildings on the site or areas used to house animals.

The cause of the fire is believed to be deliberate.
