When Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service arrived at the historic Bamber Bridge pub back on Wednesday 26 September, around a quarter of the thatched roof was on fire.

Six crews tackled the blaze and prevented the fire spreading.

While the building – which is Grade II listed and dates back to 1616 – remained structurally sound after the fire, water use had caused interior damage to the property.

At the time head chef at the pub Samantha Hambleton told Blog Preston: “It started as a very small fire. We have a log fire and it escalated up through the chimney.”
