Hereford Fire Station have provided the following update following the house fire in Belmont;

29.05.2023 14:40

461 and 462 mobilised this afternoon to reports of a garden fence on fire affecting a property in Belmont, Hereford.

On arrival it was apparent the fire had spread to two houses and the roof spaces were well alight. Immediately assistance was requested “make pumps 6”.

Firefighters were deployed in Breathing Apparatus (BA) using hose reel jets to attack the fire internally while crews set up covering jets externally to also suppress the fire.

Further crews arrived from Ewyas Harold, Leominster, Ross and Whitchurch, Aerial Ladder Platform from Worcester as well as the Incident Command Unit from Ledbury.

Once the fire was extinguished crews then pitched 9m ladders and used the ALP to remove roof tiles to expose and deal with the remaining embers. Unfortunately both properties suffered severe fire damage.

Thankfully no serious injuries were sustained. A fire investigation is currently underway to fully determine the cause of the fire.

Relief crews from Peterchurch and Fownhope were brought in this evening to damp down and maintain a watching brief.
