Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service received a call reporting smoke in a communal area and smoke alarms sounding at a property at the above location.

Skilled Fire control operators gave advice to the caller to get out of the property and to raise the alarm to as many other occupants of the property as possible whilst mobilising three fire appliances from Taunton Fire station. At the time of call, it could not be confirmed that everyone was put, and at least one occupant could not be raised.

On arrival of the first appliance, the officer in charge confirmed that the occupants were all now out of the property and accounted for.

The Ground floor of the property was smoke logged and crews were preparing to enter the property in breathing apparatus.  


The Incident commander was able to confirm the fire was out and that the fire had started in an unattended grill pan.

Police and Ambulance were quickly on scene.

The property was cleared of smoke and safety inspections were carried out in other dwellings within the property.

The fire started accidentally.
