Firefighters tackle severe blaze at York city centre restaurant

The first fire crew arrived at the scene four minutes later. They found the ground-floor kitchens, in the old waterworks building, well alight.

Fire crews on Lendal landing. Altogether five crews, including from Tadcaster, Huntington and York, were called out to the fire.

The Monroe City Fire Chief told WGEM News that a single room was fully engulfed when they arrived, however, they were able to put the fire out within about 20 minutes. He said, had they gotten there any later and the fire would have easily spread the rest of the building because of the open attic design of the structure.

The flames spread to a void in the roof, which made tackling the fire more difficult. It was put out by about 7am.

Crews responded to a fire Thursday night around 11 p.m. in a room at the Bel-Air Motel in Monroe City, Missouri.

At the moment, the incident has been left open for revisits by fire crews checking there aren’t other hotspots. Lendal landing was cordoned off but has since reopened.

As reported in this mornings press – we have had a fire in the night which has caused extensive but localised damage to our kitchen roof. A huge thank you to @NorthYorksFire for all their efforts throughout morning. We'll advise plans moving forward as soon as we have them <3

Fire crews from York, Acomb, Tadcaster and Huntington were called at 5:05am to the Star Inn the City restaurant on Museum Street.

At the moment, the incident has been left open for revisits by fire crews checking there arent other hotspots.”

Due to a fire in the early hours of this morning at The Star Inn the City, York, the kitchen will be out of action for a short time.

I would like to thank North Yorkshire Fire Service and some of our senior staff for their swift response to a difficult situation.
