Two appliances and crews from West Ashland and one from Broughton attended, along with an officer.
A bin storage cupboard, below a block of flats, was well alight when they arrived. The flats were evacuated.
The firefighters used:
- Two main jets
- One hose reel
- A short extension ladder
- Small gear
- A thermal imaging camera
- A positive pressure ventilation fan
The fire spread to affect an underground parking area. Two cars suffered fire damage.
A first-floor flat, directly above the fire, suffered smoke logging and the firefighters used positive pressure ventilation to clear the smoke.
Thames Valley Police were notified of the incident.
