Fire crews tackle blaze in basement flat on Burnham-On-Sea seafront

Firefighters tackled a blaze at a flat on Burnham-On-Sea's seafront last night (Monday).

Two fire appliances from Burnham were sent to reports of a fire within a property on the north Esplanade near Seaview Road at 7.11pm.

"Crews confirmed a basement flat was heavily smoke-logged and made entry through the front of the property," said a spokesman.

"Crews used a hose reel jet and two breathing apparatus to extinguish the fire. The cooker sustained approximately 50% damage by fire, while the rest of the property approximately 50% light smoke damage."

The cause was accidental.
