Amid the news of a potential fire in Bracknell, the Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service has issued a statement confirming that they dealt with an incident in the town centre. 

 A spokesperson has said that the team received reports of a fire on Bond Way in Bracknell at 2:48 pm Monday, November 27. 

The property where the fire occurred is believed to be Royal Winchester House. 

Upon arrival, crews discovered a kitchen fire. Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used two hose reel jets to extinguish the fire before using a fan to ventilate the property.

Members of the public had seen emergency services, including eight fire engines, racing towards Waitrose in central Bracknell. 

A spokesperson from Waitrose said: "We believe there is a fire locally, but it's not impacting the Waitrose which is operating as usual."

Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service crews from Wokingham, Crowthorne and Whitley Wood were sent to the scene alongside the Aerial Ladder Platform, four Officers and crews from Surrey Fire and Rescue Service.

The team was at the scene for approximately one hour and 23 minutes.

This news comes just after the colossal fire that tore through the One Station Hill building close by in Reading last Thursday, where two people were taken to hospital.
