THE HISTORIC Lygon Arms Hotel in Broadway has not been damaged after a chimney fire broke out last night.

The fire in the chimney broke out at about 6pm and staff and guests immediately evacuated the historic hotel.

Three fire crews rushed to scene and quickly brought the fire under control.

West Mercia Police closed the High Street at about 7pm to allow firefighters to be able to use their aerial ladder to tackle the chimney blaze.

No one was injured in the incident.

The historic hotel was also not damaged and full restaurant and hotel operations have now been resumed.

Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service and hotel management will now carry out an investigation into the chimney fire.

A spokesperson for the Lygon Arms said: “We can confirm that no person was injured during this incident and we would like to thank the emergency services for their quick response in bringing this incident under control.

“No damage has been caused to the building and full restaurant and hotel operations have been resumed.

“A report will be prepared when the management of the hotel and the fire brigade have completed their investigations.”
