Brean bar re-opens for business after early morning electrical fire

A Brean bar is open for business as usual despite an electrical fire on Friday (December 19th).

Three fire crews from Burnham-On-Sea, Weston and Bridgwater rushed to Krackers Karaoke Bar in South Road, Brean at 2am.

Two crew members wearing breathing apparatus used a hose reel jet and carbon dioxide extinguishers to extinguish the fire, which was started by an electrical fault.

"The fire was contained to an electrical cupboard in the property, causing moderate fire damage, severe smoke damage and some minor smoke damage to the flats above," said a fire spokesman.

Positive pressure ventilation equipment was used to ventilate the building and Western Power attended to isolate the electrics.

A spokesman for Krackers told "We are open as normal over the Christmas period despite the fire."
