Three fire engines attended a blaze in a Penarth pub – the Clive Arms in John St – last night.

Drinks had to be dispensed by candlelight last night in the Clive Arms after fire crews had used two hoses to extinguish the upstairs blaze

Candles were in use last night in the Clive Arms after fire crews had used two hoses to extinguish the upstairs 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”

    Last time I was there it was still a proper boozer resisting the ghastly gastro “movement”. Great no-one was hurt and I do wish the Pub and its customers all the best. Carry on up The Clive.

      They’ll always remember the man with the lime green beret who wanted to order red wine with fish.

        Is he the one who ate a whole tray loaded with bloater paste sandwiches meant for the visiting ladies’ skittles team?

        That’s the one! Drank Campari, said he’d fight any woman in the bar, then burst into tears when the jukebox played The Carpenters as a random selection.
