Chimney Fire

A NEWBURY pub was evacuated in the early hours of Sunday morning (October 29) over fears of a chemical incident in a bin. 

Several people from the Snooty Fox, on Bartholomew Street, were treated at the scene for breathing difficulties by the South Central Ambulance Service but did not require hospital treatment. 

Two fire crews from Newbury Fire Station investigated and identified there was no threat from chemicals. The incident was caused by an air-freshener over the bar. 

They were on the scene for approximately an hour.

    Perhaps closing it down permanently to help stop all the drunken fights happening

    The large photo of the fireman is overdoing it a bit don't you think. Perhaps one of a plug in air freshener would have sufficed !!

    Probably not used to a nice, clean smell in there.
