The fire service received a call at around 8pm stating there was a strong smell of gas at a property in Mill Road. Fire appliances from Holsworthy and Hartland as well as the environmental protection unit from North Tawton were called out. A specialist hazmat officer and an environmental advisor also attended. Two people were evacuated from the building prior to the arrival of fire fighters and the property was ventilated. A Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue spokesman said: On arrival crews confirmed a strong smell of gas within the property and set to work investigating using two breathing apparatus wearers, one hose reel jet and a gas detector. Two occupants were evacuated from the property prior to the arrival of the fire service. Crews isolated the gas tank and allowed the property to ventilate naturally.
