A dog has died and two people have been treated for smoke inhalation after a house fire in Bristol.

Two crews from Bedminster and two crews from Temple fire station were called to a fire in a first-floor bedroom of a semi-detached property in Turtlegate Avenue, Bishopsworth overnight.   

A spokesperson for Avon Fire and Rescue Service said "On arrival, firefighters found the property well alight"

"Eight firefighters in breathing apparatus used two high-pressure hose reels and one 45mm jet to extinguish the fire."

"Crews then began turning over and damping down the area and a positive pressure ventilation fan was used to clear smoke."

"One male casualty suffering smoke inhalation was passed to ambulance colleagues."

"A further occupant presented themselves suffering with smoke inhalation and was also passed to ambulance colleagues."

"One dog was rescued from the property and despite receiving treatment from the fire crews at the scene, the dog sadly passed away."

"We are assisting the police in relation to the incident and the cause of the fire is unknown at this time."
