Smoke was seen billowing from one of Bristol Airport’s car parks this morning (February 26). The fire broke out in the Silver Zone car park at 7.30am, and involved a Range Rover vehicle.

Two appliances from Bedminster were called to the blaze and firefighers used breathing apparatus and hose reels to put it out. The cause is thought to be accidental ignition, an Avon Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson told Bristol World.

Bristol Airport said there were no injuries or disruption to flights.

The Avon Fire and Rescue spokesperson said: “We got called just after 7.30am - two appliances from Bedminster called to the Silver Zone car park where a Range Rover was on fire.” He added: “Crews left after 20 minutes.”

It comes days after fire crews were called to a car fire on the A38 in Redhill, near to the airport. That fire, on February 23 at 5pm, was also a result of accidental ignition.
