A SHED and garage caught fire at a home in Hereford.

Two engines were called to the Belmont area of the city at 3.45pm today (February 11).

However, due to the significant fire,  which started to affect the roof space of the property, further assistance was required, meaning four engines were in attendance. 


In a Facebook post, Hereford Fire Station said: "Firefighters deployed two hose reel jets and a 45mm main jet to tackle the fire, stopping the fire entering the roof space itself.

"Crews also responded from Ewyas Harold and Peterchurch.

"A further reinspection of the incident is scheduled to ensure no further hot spots."

It is understood the fire was close to a crash that happened at around the same time. The latter was on the A465, near the turn off for Haywood Lane, and is believed to have involved a motorcyclist.
