Burnham-On-Sea fire crews called to two incidents in Highbridge

These were the scenes in part of Highbridge on Thursday afternoon (February 19th) as two fire crews were sent to extinguish a kitchen blaze.

Two Burnham-On-Sea fire engines were sent to Stiling Close, just off Paddock Drive, at 5.20pm, as pictured here.

Firefighters equipped with breathing apparatus entered the home to quickly bring the small kitchen fire under control. The fire service used ventilation fans to remove fumes from the property.

In a second, separate incident, staff at a Highbridge charity were evacuated on Thursday morning after a fire alert.

A Burnham-On-Sea fire engine was called to the National Blind Childrens Society in Bank Street, as pictured, after its alarms sounded.

But spokeswoman Tracy Wightman told "Fortunately, it was a false alarm caused by the builders, who are currently working at the bottom of the building on our new book publishing area."
