Crews were called to a fire involving a hot tub in a shed in Weston-super-Mare at the weekend.

Avon Fire and Rescue Service received reports of the blaze at a property in Hosegood Street at about 9.40pm on Saturday.

The flames also damaged the property’s windows.

On arrival the crews used breathing apparatus, two high pressure hose reels, a 45mm jet and triple extension ladder to put out the fire.

A positive pressure ventilation fan was then used to clear smoke from the area.

The cause of the fire was accidental.
