There was a fire in Brean tonight (Saturday).


Fire crews rushed to a caravan fire this evening (Saturday) after a barbecue was left unattended in Brean.

A pair of appliances were called from Burnham-on-Sea and Bridgwater to attend Warren Farm Caravan Park in Warren Road.

The fire had been extinguished on arrival but crews made sure any fire ‘hot-spots’ were thoroughly checked.

Its cause is believed to have been due to a disposable barbecue which was left unattended in a bin in the caravan.
