The fire service has praised quick-thinking staff at a pub in March after they helped extinguish a blaze in its kitchen.

Workers at the Cobblestones Pub on Wisbech Road were called into action yesterday (September 29) at around 7pm.

They used a fire blanket and a CO2 extinguisher before two fire engines arrived from March and the blaze was extinguished.

Andy Powell, watch commander, said: “Prompt action by the kitchen staff by correctly using a fire blanket and C02 extinguisher and isolating the gas supply prevented this incident from being worse.”
