Street cordoned off in Northampton town centre while fire fighters enter building
A street in Northampton town centre has been cordoned off after reports of smoke coming from a vacant building.
Shoppers were shocked to see two fire engines roll down the high street in Northampton this afternoon when smoke was spotted coming from a vacant shop unit next to the Subway outlet in Fish Street.
Currently the short stretch is cordoned off while around six firefighters deal with the incident.
However a spokeswoman for Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue said the incident is not thought to be serious and is likely to have been caused by cigarette smoke.
