‘Well alight’ shed spreads to residential property in Taunton

Two fire appliances from Taunton were sent to a report of a shed on fire between two houses on Valley Road in Taunton at 15:14 this afternoon (Friday).

On arrival, crews confirmed that the shed was well alight and spreading to a residential property.

A further two pumping appliances were requested and these were immediately sent on from Taunton and Bridgwater.

The shed was 100% damaged by fire and a residential property was externally affected by fire but not internally.

To extinguish the fire, crews used two hose reel jets, two breathing apparatus, one thermal image camera, a triple extension ladder and one safety jet.
