Location: BABYLON VIEW , YEOVIL
Fire crews from Yeovil were mobilised to reports of a building fire within the industrial estate of Babylon view , Yeovil.
Upon arrival this was found to be several small seats of fire within an industrial agricultural grain hopper.
Three appliances from Yeovil and one appliance from Sherbourne, plus an incident support unit from Yeovil attended.
6 breathing apparatus were used as crews attempted to get at hotspots within grain by digging away the mounds of grain within and surrounding the industrial hopper. One hosereel jet was used to extinguish as well as removal of a large amount of grain. Having accessed and extinguished the hotspots, crews then dampened down the grain and surrounding area.
Cause of this fire was accidental. Crews are currently making up their equipment and returning to their home stations.
Incident now closed.
