Up to 200 scooters damaged in fire

As many as 200 Voi rental scooters were damaged in a fire in a warehouse in Brislington on New Year’s Day.

Crews from Kingswood, Hicks Gate, Bedminster and Temple fire stations attended the blaze and were at the scene for several hours.

The cause of the fire is being investigated. It is understood that it has put about 20% of Voi’s long-term rental fleet out of service.
