Guests and staff had to be evacuated from a popular hotel during the early hours of Tuesday 2nd April, after a large fire broke out at Manor House Hotel in Alsager, Stoke-On-Trent.
Four fire crews from Alsager, Crew, Congleton and Staffordshire attended the incident. Which originated at 5.47AM, from within the kitchen area.
An investigation is currently underway to determine the cause of the fire.
Fortunately, all members of staff and guests were safely evacuated from the building. Fire crews then extinguished the fire using breathing apparatus and extended hose reels.
After the fire had been brought under control, the gas and electric were isolated, while a large fan was used to clear the smoke from the building. The crews used a thermal imaging camera to check for further hot spots and continued to dampen down the building.
