Firefighters tackle severe blaze at York city centre restaurant
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.
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 flames spread to a void in the roof, which made tackling the fire more difficult. It was put out by about 7am.
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
