Three fire engines attended a blaze in a Penarth pub – the Clive Arms in John St – last night.
The fire broke out in the early evening in first floor accommodation above the main pub . Fire-fighters from Penarth, Ely and Cardiff Central fire-stations attended the blaze
Fire crews wore breathing apparatus to enter the premises and used two hoses. It’s understood no one was injured but there was smoke damage. Candles were brought in to replace mains electricity so that the pub could remain open for business.
The landlord of the pub later issued a statement to customers saying “As most of you are aware, earlier the flat above the pub caught fire, luckily no one was hurt and the fire was put out promptly by the fire brigade. The pub is open for business as usual. Hope to see you all soon. Thank you for all your kind messages x”
