Fire Call, 12th of May, Fire at TSB, Tavistock make pumps four.

Currently we get little feed back from people reading the blog. If you have any questions, suggestions or comments please use the facility below.

At 03:45!!! on the 12th of May, Yelverton appliance was called to “Make pumps four” for a fire at TSB, Tavistock. On arrival the crew liaised with Tavistock crew who had put the make up call in and we set to work checking the second floor flats using the 135 ladder. Satisfied the fire hadn’t spread to the second floor the crew were then tasked to use the positive pressure fan to remove smoke from the premises. The fire appears to have been caused by a shredder which gives me an opportunity to remind everyone to turn off appliances at the plug that you’re not using especially at night.

I’ve included a photo, clearly firefighters are not natural photographers so I’ll apologise for the quality now 🙂
