A fire has almost completely destroyed a pub near Huntingdon.
Crews were called to the Hartford Mill public house in Hartford Marina at around 4.25am.
Firefighters said only the function room has been saved from the blaze, but is severely smoke damaged.
Richard Dykes, Incident Commander said: "Due to the severity of the fire when we arrived, we were unable to save the public house itself, but were able to stop it from spreading to the function room.
"This was a large fire, which has destroyed the home of a family and a popular venue used by the local community. Thankfully everyone was able to get out of the property quickly and unharmed."
An investigation will take place today to determine the cause of the fire.
