4:04pm Tuesday 26th June 2012 in News
THREE fire engines attended the Taunton branch of Moss Bros this afternoon (June 26) following reports of a strong smell of burning.
Shoppers were evacuated from the premises while firefighters investigated the cause.
A Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: "Two fire appliances and the aerial ladder platform from Taunton were initally sent as it was unsure what was involved.
"On arrival crews confirmed there was a smell of burning on the ground and first floor, and used a thermal imaging camera to investigate.
"Crews found it to be a fire in a light fitting which was extinguished. Crews then isolated electrics and ventilated the property.
