Fire Crews from around Plymouth attended a fire which had spread from the rear garden of a property to the house and adjacent properties. Initial crews requested an additional 3 appliances to attend due to a well developed fire and the need for further personnel. Neighbouring premises were evacuated whilst crews used a hose reel jet to tackle the fire. All utilities to the property were isolated to prevent escalation and Breathing Apparatus wearers were increased to 4 with 2 hose reel jets and a safety jet in use.
At 00:24 Crews were cutting away and damping down as the fire was now extinguished. Breathing Apparatus wearers had also increased to 6 as the fire was also involving the adjacent property affecting the first floor bedroom external window and wall.
A ground floor dining room was 100% damaged by fire and the remainder of the premises was smoke logged. A total of 6 BA 2 Hose Reel Jets, 2 Safety Jets, 1 Triple Extension Ladder and 3 Thermal Imaging Cameras were used throughout the incident.
