At 9:49am on Saturday, 11 June, we received reports of a fire at a domestic property on Gower Street in Reading.
Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS) crews from Caversham Road, Wokingham Road, and Whitley Wood fire stations were sent to the scene, alongside one RBFRS Officer.
Upon arrival, crews confirmed a fire affecting the ground floor of a mid-terrace property.
Two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus extinguished the fire using a hose reel, before using a large fan to clear the remaining smoke.
Crews were on the scene for approximately one hour and 15 minutes.
