Barbecue causes fire drama at Highbridge home

Burnham-On-Sea firefighters were called to tackle a blaze at a Highbridge home last night (Thursday, March 17th).

One fire engine was sent to the Poplar Estate at 10.30pm to extinguish a blaze within an outbuilding on the side of a home, as pictured here.

Water jets were used to extinguish the fire and damp down the building.

A fire spokesman told "A hot barbecue set that had been used earlier in the day had been stored away in the outbuilding and this is what is thought to have caused the fire."

A heat seeking camera was used to check for any remaining hot spots before the crews declared the building safe.
