Two fire crews tackled a large shed fire in Highbridge’s Clyce that left the inside of the building heavily damaged.

The fire was reported by a member of the public at 4.48pm on Saturday (August 15th).

Crews from Burnham-On-Sea and Bridgwater found a “well developed” blaze in the shed and they extinghuished it without a vehicle inside being damaged.

A spokesman for the fire service says: “Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service received a call from a member of the public reporting a shed on fire with a vehicle inside.”

“Two fire appliances from Burnham-On-Sea and an appliance from Bridgwater were immediately mobilised by Fire Control.”

“On arrival, the Incident Commander found that there was a well developed fire within the corrugated steel shed which is approximately 20m x 10m.”

“Crews worked hard to contain the fire and prevented the fire reaching the vehicle that was inside. The cause of the fire was deemed to be accidental.”
