Area: Somerset
County: Somerset

Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service received a call from a member of the public reporting a fire in a public house at the above location.

Three fire appliances and an Aerial Ladder Platform from Yeovil, Wincanton and Castle Cary were immediately mobilised by Fire Control.

On arrival, the Incident Commander confirmed that there was smoke issuing from the property and requested the attendance of another fire appliance from Yeovil. Crews got to work to begin tackling the fire using breathing apparatus, hose reel jets and ladders.

A sixth fire appliance was requested to attend due to the amount of breathing apparatus in use at the incident.

The fire was finally extinguished using breathing apparatus, hose reel jets, safety jets, triple extension ladders, thermal imaging cameras, ceiling hooks, and small tools. It caused about 80% fire damage to the room of origin and significant smoke damage to the rest of the property. The fire was believed to have been started by a carpet cleaning machine.
