It has been reported in This is Plymouth that gasses inside a fridge freezer are believed to be behind a blaze at a car port. The fire, which took place on the Church Road land, an area used as a dumping ground, took an hour to be brought under control. Firefighters from Plymstock station arrived at the fire shortly after midnight, using two hose reel jets to tackle the flames.
