Oxfordshire County Council Fire and Rescue Service were called to a fire at a public house in Ramsden near Witney at 10.07 am this morning.
Four fire engines attended the fire and on arrival crews were faced with smoke issuing from the roof of the grade 2 listed building. Fire crews wearing breathing apparatus entered the building with a hose reel to tackle the fire.
The crews discovered that the fire involved a tumble dryer in a first floor room which had caused heavy smoke logging throughout the property. The crews quickly extinguished the fire and prevented it from spreading to the remainder of the premises.
Oxfordshire County Council Fire and Rescue Service advise that if you discover a fire within your property the best course of action is to get out, stay out and call the fire service out.
