Control received multiple calls to a potential building fire in Bridgewater. 2 fire engines from Bridgewater attended the incident. On arrival crews confirmed a garage, caravan outbuilding and a single storey building were on fire. Crews requested a further appliance for extra manpower attend.

Fire control assigned a further fire engine from Nether Stowey to offer support to the crews in attendance.

Crews extinguished the fire using 3 jets, 6 breathing apparatus and 1 battery fan, utilising a local hydrant.

The caravan has been 100% destroyed by fire, the outbuilding and garage 80% destroyed by fire and the bungalow sustained 5% damage to external wall of the property.

Crews are still at work with 2 breathing apparatus and 1 jet dampening down the area.

Police have been requested as there is a possibility this was a deliberate fire.
