firefighters tackle 'deliberate' 1.30am blaze
firefighters were called to extinguish a deliberate blaze in the
early hours of Saturday morning (June 5th).
Burnham fire engine was sent to a block of flats next to the Lighthouse
pub in Highbridge Road at 1.30am after a pile of furniture and
storage building was set alight.
fire crew used a hose reel jet to extinguish the blaze, which
destroyed the furniture and damaged the roof and side of the small
nearby resident told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The furniture had
been there for probably a couple of weeks, which raises the question
about how and when this stuff is picked up by the council."
charred remains of the furniture were still visible on Saturday
morning, as pictured here
