FIREFIGHTERS have been tackling a blaze that broke out behind a town centre road this afternoon.

Four fire engines attended the fire affecting a building behind Domino's in Bridge Street, with two ambulances present.

A Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson has confirmed firefighters were called out at 1.36pm to the two-storey building.

The spokesperson said firefighters equipped with breathing apparatus, one hose and one jet dealt with the fire.

So far no injuries have been reported.

Eyewitness Toni Bearne: "There was a fire behind the shop next to Domino's it was really smokey.

"The first fire engine was here and they were running in with the hoses down the alleyway there was loads and loads of smoke coming out.

"It was a commercial premises I don't think anyone was living there, it smelt like burning paper.

"The traffic was backed up and police moved them away.

"Good job no-one was in there."

Social media reports suggested the fire was in a building used by Domino's as a storeroom.

When The Advertiser attended the scene the incident appeared to be under control.
