Derelict pub fire in Rotherham

Six fire engines have been tackling a large fire overnight at a derelict Sports and Social Club at Willowgarth in Rawmarsh.

Fire crews from Rotherham, Dearne, Maltby, Edlington, Parkway and Elm Lane stations were called to the blaze at 12:30am on Christmas Eve.

The building was well alight with two floors involved in the fire.

Crews wearing breathing apparatus used main jets to fight the fire.

Three fire engines still remain at the scene this morning (9am).

An investigation into the cause of the fire will take place once it is completely out.
