South Wales Fire and Rescue Service say the fire at Blooms garden centre was an accident.

Firefighters were called to the garden centre in St Mellons at around 10pm last night.

Only the exterior of the building remains and the centre have confirmed they will be closed for the foreseeable future.

Group Manager, Brian Thompson said “Crews faced challenging situations dealing with a large fire, including small explosions on the site involving cylinders. Crews did a tremendous job preventing the fire spreading to nearby houses and businesses and remained on site for the rest of the night.”
