Stoke-on-Trent restaurant blaze: fire crews still at scene

  • 8-28-2013

Fire crews are still at the scene of a restaurant blaze in Staffordshire.

The fire broke out on Tuesday night at Planet Bollywood on Glebe Street in Stoke-on-Trent.

At its height, six crews were in attendance. Firefighters remain at the scene to carry out onsite inspections.

Firefighters believe the blaze was caused by the kitchen extractor fan catching fire, causing flames to rise to the roof.

Staffordshire Fire and Rescue's head of risk reduction, Glynn Luznyi, said: "This was a particularly fierce fire which took hold very quickly and spread rapidly.

"The crews are expected to be on the scene for the next 24 hours."

Nobody was injured.
