A POLICE investigation has been launched after a fire at a golf club near Weston this morning (Thurs).

The blaze started in a maintenance storage shed, which contained highly-explosive propene gas cylinders, at Weston Super Range in Wolvershill Road between Weston and Banwell.

Firefighters were called out just after 3am after an eyewitness spotted flames from the M5.

The fire was not in an area golfers and members of the public use.

It was a shed which stored large sit-on lawn mowers and equipment for maintaining the grounds.

Three fire engines from Weston were sent out to the incident and were able to put it out and cool down the cylinders.

The cause of the fire is being investigated and is being treated as suspicious.
