Fire Control received calls to a bungalow on fire in Bridgwater. Three fire engines from Street, Burnham-On-Sea and Taunton were mobilised. Fire crews confirmed a fire at the rear of the bungalow affecting a conservatory. Neighbours had already tried to put out the fire using a garden hose prior to the arrival of the Fire Service.
Fire crews gained entry via the occupiers who had returned to the property. One small dog was removed from the bungalow unharmed.
Fire crews confirmed slight smoke logging to the property which was ventilated using a positive pressure ventilation fan and checked for fire spread.
Fire crews confirmed this was a fire involving the external wall of the conservatory of a bungalow measuring 10 metres by 15 metres of brick and tile construction. Approximately 30% of the external cladding on the conservatory was damaged by fire. 10% of the inside of the bungalow was affected by smoke. The fire was extinguished by fire crews using 1 hose reel jet, a thermal imaging camera and a positive pressure ventilation fan. The cause of the fire is believed to be accidental.
