Fire crews called to pizza oven fire on Bridge Street in Taunton

Three fire appliances from Taunton were mobilised earlier this evening (Tuesday) following a call from staff at a restaurant in Bridge Street in Taunton, which is in the process of being renovated, where it was reported that a newly installed pizza oven had caught fire.

“Shortly after arriving and investigating with 2BA and 1 hose reel jet, crews confirmed that the fire, which started accidentally, was out on our arrival. However, the ground floor was heavily smoke logged, so crews used a positive pressure ventilation fan to clear the smoke before leaving duty of care with a responsible person” said Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service.
