Between 6:10 and 6:20pm GMT a small fire broke out on Crwys Road in Cardiff. The area, located in Cathays – an area of Cardiff heavily populated by students and known for its many restaurant and takeout’s -had a noticeable large police and fire brigade presence which remained in the area until 7:09pm when the last of the emergency service vehicles left.
The fire, which occurred in 63 Crwys Road, was ‘small in scale’ according to a neighbour who smelled the smoke and went out to see the emergency service response. The resident, who did not wish to be named, noted an awareness of a ‘smoky smell’ before being alerted of the severity of the fire which, to the best of their knowledge, did not spread to other nearby buildings.
One man who was out for a meal in Maria’s, a local restaurant, named David Evens arrived, to his estimate, half an hour before the incident died down. Evens stated that “from the body language of the firefighters everything appeared ok” and that it did not appear to serious.
Enquiring at the residency, all residents appeared in good health and spirit as they left the location. The landlord, who was present with the tenants, offered no comment other than no one had been hurt, sustained serious injury or passed away.
It is currently unknown what the cause of the fire was. Emergency services have currently been unavailable for contact to enquire of the nature of the incident. I will be updating this story as it develops.
