Caravan Destroyed After Fire

At 16:29Hrs on Wednesday 12th May 2010, the Service received a number of calls reporting a caravan fire in Bridstow near Ross-on-Wye. Three crews of on-call firefighters from Ross-on-Wye (2) and Whitchurch (1) attended the incident.

On arrival firefighters found one caravan well alight with three LPG cylinders involved, and fire spreading to an adjacent property as one of the cylinders vented off with flames directed towards the house. Police closed the road, whilst crews used breathing apparatus and hose-reels to bring the fire under control – preventing further spread to nearby property.
