Fire crews from Burnham-On-Sea battle house blaze in Bridgwater

Firefighters from Burnham-On-Sea, Taunton, Street and Bridgwater tackled a house fire on Friday morning (July 27th).

One fire engine from Burnham was among six called to Holford Road in Bridgwater shortly before 11am, as pictured here, where a roof was alight.

"The property was a detached chalet-style property with fire damage to the roof and first floor," a fire spokesman told

"Crews used three hose reel jets and a covering jet, three triple extension ladders, two roof ladders, confined space equipment, small tools and water from a hydrant. They also carried out salvage of property from within the house."

An ambulance was requested to treat an adult male who was suffering from the effects of smoke inhalation. The cause of the fire was accidental.
