‘The fire was in the shed but it spread to the roof space of a neighbour’s property.

‘The stop came in at 10.09am.

‘There were six breathing apparatus used, two hose reels, two jets, and one male was treated at the scene and handed over to the South Central Ambulance Service.

‘We’ve still got two of the pumps at the scene because some of the roof tiles on the house had to be removed so they need to make the area safe, and the roof weatherproof, in case it rains later on.’
