A neighbour prevented a storage shed fire from spreading to a house in Warwick this morning.

The resident attacked the blaze with a hose in Dunscombe Road, shortly after 8am, according to the Bermuda Fire and Rescue Service.

Firefighters later arrived and extinguished the flames, which were coming through the roof of the structure. The shed was badly damaged from smoke and heat.

Fire Service spokesman, Sergeant Delton White, praised the neighbour for his quick thinking.

He said: “The fire had the potential to be a lot worse without the intervention of the neighbour and for that we are thankful.”

The cause of the fire is being investigated.
