SALISBURY’S newest shop filled with smoke after the intruder alarm was set off.

Dorset and Wiltshire Fire Service were called out to Bradbeers, in Blue Boar Row, around 6.30pm on Saturday, November 11 after reports of heavy smoke.

A spokesperson for the fire service said: “Due the property type, seven appliances were mobilised including the aerial ladder platform from Salisbury.

“On arrival the cause of smoke was found to be from the intruder alarm that activated a smoke cloak in the ground floor of the premises.”

At 7.22pm the firefighters confirmed there was no fire and the alarm was deactivated.

One witness posted on X, formerly known as Twitter: "Three fire engines and two police cars outside just before 7. Windows all fogged up. But back to normal when I walked back about 9."

Wiltshire Police said: “We responded to the activation of an intruder alarm at a building on Blue Boar Row, Salisbury just before 6.30pm on Saturday.

“On arrival officers found no sign of forced entry and supported colleagues at the fire service to search the property. We did not find anything suspicious or of concern.”
