Burnham-On-Sea fire crews tackle garage blaze in Berrow

Fire crews from Burnham-On-Sea and Bridgwater were called to tackle a garage blaze in Berrow on Tuesday evening (January 12th).

Two fire engines from Burnham and a water carrier from Bridgwater were sent to Monkstone Drive at 9.15pm.

"On arrival the crews confirmed the garage was well alight and got to work extinguishing the blaze using breathing apparatus," a fire spokesman told

He added that the crews used one hose reel jet to extinguish the flames and a thermal imaging camera to check for other heat sources. A tortoise was killed in the blaze.
