Huge fire on St Ives waterfront this evening

Fire fighters are tackling a huge blaze at vintage tea rooms in a popular shopping destination close to the St Ives waterfront, after a fire broke out around 7.30pm this evening.

Police officers have set up a perimeter to keep bystanders back and nearby houses have lost electricity after the fire began in a small shopping area known as The Arcade on Wharf Road.

It is believed the fire could have started at Wafflelicious, which is next door to the vintage tea rooms.
