Watch: As Firefighters Tackle An Electrical Fire

Over 100 homes were without power Monday evening (05/01) after a electrical fire broke out at a home in Yardley Wood.

Firefighters from Billesley were called to Beta Grove after a call was made to emergency services by a neighbour.

On arrival crews used CO2 fire extinguishers to control the blaze while engineers from Western Power Distribution shut off the electricity to ensure no further damage was done.

Virgin Media services were also affected by the blaze and most customers had their service resumed a few hours later. If your still experiencing issues you can check the status of the repair here: https://my.virginmedia.com/faults/service-status
