Smoking fridges in Falmouth hotel bar lead to early morning call out
8:58am Tuesday 17th September 2013 in Cornwall
Smoking fridges led to fire crews being called to a Falmouth hotel early this morning.
Twelve firefighters were called to the unnamed hotel on the harbour side at 5am.
A member of staff contacted them to say there had been a water leak in the bar overnight and as a result the fridges were smoking, as water had entered the appliances.
The two crews isolated the electricity and water supply to the bar and helped bail the water out.
They also investigated the smell of smoke and confirmed there was no fire.
