Fire Alarms Force The Range Staff and Customers to EvacuateStaff and customers from The Range Andover were evacuated today after the fire alarm system was activated.

One fire engine attended and whilst fire-fighters investigated, everyone stood outside in the cold.

A member of staff told Andover & Villages, “We think it was a toaster that set the alarms off in our new cafe upstairs. The alarms are very sensitive.”

As Andover & Villages left the scene, staff were being counted back into the building.

Have you been to the Range cafe – What did you think?
