A pub has suffered ‘severe damage’ after a fire this weekend.
A blaze broke out in The Rosewood, in Burnham-on-Sea, yesterday afternoon (Saturday) and took Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service crews more than six hours to extinguish.
Staff and customers were evacuated from the pub, in Love Lane, shortly before 2.30pm after a fire began in the kitchen.
But the flames spread to the roof and other parts of the building.
Teams from Burnham, Bridgwater, Street, Taunton and other parts of Somerset had to support the firefighting effort.
The fire was finally put out at about 9pm.
A fire service spokesman said: "The cause (is) deemed to be accidental.
