Four sheds destroyed in blaze at Watchfield

Fire crews from Burnham-On-Sea and Bridgwater were called to out to tackle a series of shed blazes in Watchfield on Friday evening (July 30th).

At 6.11pm crews from Burnham were sent to a report of a single shed on fire - but on their approach they could see large volumes of smoke and an additional fire engine was sent to the scene, plus a water carrier from Bridgwater.

"The single shed fire had started spreading to a further three more sheds. Crews extinguished the fires using three hose reel jets," a fire spokesman told

The sheds were all severely destroyed, as well as their contents, by fire and heat. The cause is believed to have been accidental due to an unattended bonfire.
