East Reach fire that caused Taunton traffic chaos started in laundrette boiler room
The huge fire that caused rush hour traffic chaos in Taunton last night started in a boiler room at the rear of a laundrette.
The East Reach road was closed in both directions for around three hours after the blaze broke out at the back of Laundromat at around 4pm.
Four fire crews from Taunton and Wellington fought the flames, along with a support appliance from Ilminster.
An ambulance also attended the scene to treat one man for the effects of smoke inhalation.
