James Bladon, spokesman for Avon Fire and Rescue Service, said the cause of the fire was being investigated.
Five hours earlier, firefighters had been called out following reports of a blaze at a property behind a rank of shops in Memorial Road, Hanham.
The fire, which started in a kitchen, was already out when crews arrived. A woman in her 30s was treated at the scene for smoke inhalation.
Mr Bladon said that on Tuesday evening firefighters also dealt with a chimney fire at a home in Wharf Lane, Portbury, and a blaze at a property Rackvernal Road, Midsomer Norton, started by a faulty electricity box.
