white horse pub in Nantwich

A Nantwich pub had to be evacuated today (July 4) after a kitchen went up in smoke.

Staff and customers fled from the White Horse pub on Pillory Street as the blaze started in a fryer.

Firefighters from Nantwich and Crewe attended the scene and isolated the gas and electricity supplies to prevent explosions.

They also used CO2 and a wet chemical extinguisher to put out the fire, and a high pressure fan was then used to clear the smoke.

It’s not thought anyone was injured in the incident which happened at about 1.40pm today.

    The “blaze” was confined to a small frier in the kitchen- nobody was hurt and damage very limited!! Pub open as usual as of a few hours ago, food service will be suspended for a short time for repairs.
