FOUR fire crews were called to a blaze at a derelict farmhouse in Frenchay.

Crews from Speedwell, Kingswood, Southmead and Patchway attended the fire on Frenchay Park Road at 4.01pm on Thursday (April 3).

They used a high pressure hose reel and a 45mm and a 70mm jet to extinguish out the fire, which Avon Fire and Rescue Service said it believed had been started deliberately.

Spokeswoman Stephanie Mounsey said: “Fortunately no one was inside at the time and no one was hurt.”
