SOMERSET NEWS: Flat fire in Taunton

FIREFIGHTERS were called out on Thursday (February 15, 2018) afternoon following reports of a fire at a flat in Taunton.

The alarm was raised at just before 5pm at Milford Place in Winchester Street and two fire engines from Taunton were mobilised.

The Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service was notified by a passing member of the public who could see a fire on the second floor of a block of flats and could hear an alarm sounding.

Firefighters entered the block of flats and quickly located the fire involving a chip pan and confirmed all persons were accounted for.

They got to work to ventilate the heavily smoke-logged flat.

Duty of care was left with the occupants and the Fire Service spokesman were pleased to report that there were “no casualties.”
