At around midday today, four fire engines were called to the H&M store on Exeter High Street.
Details are currently ambiguous but eyewitness reports suggest that smoke was seen billowing out of the shop. The fire service has confirmed that the smoke was logged on the ground floor.
One confused shopper tweeted that she had been in the changing room when the alarm went off, and others have complained at the convenience of the closed store.
It is allegedly an electrical fire, and H&M and Barclays Bank were both evacuated. One tweeter proclaimed: “H&M is on fire.”
The situation is ongoing.
