At 7:41am on Thursday, 11 January, we received reports of a fire on Oxford Road in Reading.
Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service crews from Caversham Road, Wokingham Road and Whitley Wood fire stations were sent to the scene alongside an Officer.
Upon arrival, crews discovered a building filled with smoke. Firefighters equipped with breathing apparatus entered the property and searched for the source, concluding that the cause was a smoke cloak. Firefighters then used a fan to ventilate the smoke from the property.
