Crews from Bedminster Fire Station, were called to St Jude’s in the early hours of Sunday 31 March, after another arson attack at a high-rise block of flats.
Haviland House is a densely populated block, full of families and children. Residents are becoming fearful for their safety after the fifth incident in five months.
Thanks God it’s over! Some tired bunnies in #Bedminster station this morning. Plenty of alarms, rubbish fire, bushes fire and a high rise fire in the city with @AFRSTemple. #Bluewatch in charge for the next 2 days. #norestforthewicked pic.twitter.com/Orb9iIoYLR

Bristol Somali Community Association voiced concerns in the past, believing this to be the around the eighth time this has happened in as many months. They say residents ‘don’t feel safe’.
Again a fire in Haviland House.
A resident contacted us to document the massive fire which shocked the residents of that house.
It’s believed to be an arson.
It’s the 7th or 8th time these residents wake up with huge smoke coming from inside their building.
They don’t feel safe. pic.twitter.com/2ZIeKII47z

In February 2019, the Association voiced concerns about repeated fires, a lack of security, lack of repairs and people accessing the buildings and communal areas that should not be there.
Another rubbish fire in the high rises of St Jude’s Bristol at 2am this morning. This is a densely populated area and it’s becoming a pattern. Though I’ve long ago come to the conclusion that no one cares about St Jude’s. pic.twitter.com/0UEdGddCep
