Bodin Gardens garden fire

At 1:15am on Wednesday, 29 June, we received a call to a report of a fire at a domestic property in Bodin Gardens in Newbury.

Two Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service (RBFRS) crews from Newbury Fire Station, a crew from Hungerford Fire Station and a crew from Theale Community Fire Station were sent to the scene, alongside the Incident Command Unit from Maidenhead Fire Station and one RBFRS Officer.

Upon arrival, crews confirmed a fire in the garden of the property, which had spread to three other nearby gardens. This incident also included gas cylinders, with one exploding before the arrival of crews.

Crews worked to extinguish the fire and made two other gas cylinders safe. Two people were also placed into the care of South Central Ambulance Service.

Crews were on initially on the scene for approximately two hours, but returned in the morning to re-inspect the area and ensure it is safe.
