A man was treated for smoke inhalation after a fire broke out in a terraced property on East Reach, Taunton.

The blaze also caused rush hour traffic chaos in the town yesterday and the A38 was closed.

One man has been treated for smoke inhalation at the scene of the blaze, which broke out in a building on East Reach near the Esso garage at around 4pm this afternoon.

Fire crews requested an ambulance to treat the casualty, who was treated on the scene, and further assistance from an Ilminster support crew was requested.

The fire is said to have started in the boiler room at the rear of a Laundromat on East Reach in a mid-terraced property.
