Kenilworth fire crews were called to deal with a pub fire in Preston Bagot this morning.

Nine crews from across Warwickshire attended the blaze at the Crabmill after a call at 7.10am this morning.

The fire, which started in the pub's kitchen, caused "a lot of damage" according to the pub's owners.

Kenilworth's water carrier was called to the scene, and the incident has now been scaled down.

A Kenilworth Fire Station spokesperson said: "This morning Kenilworth's Water Carrier was mobilised along with eight other crews to a pub on fire in Preston Bagot.

"The remaining crew from Kenilworth were alerted shortly after to standby at Leamington Fire Station provide fire cover to Leamington and surrounding areas."

Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service added: "The initial call was to a fire in the kitchen and utility area.

"Eight appliances from various stations attended along with a turntable ladder and water carrier. The incident has now been scaled down."

Following the blaze the pub's owners took to Facebook to announce its closure for the foreseeable future.

"We have some very sad news to share that we have had a fire at the pub, causing a lot of damage," they said.

"It was early this morning and nobody was hurt, but it of course means that we will be closed until further notice.

"If you have a booking with us we will be getting in touch. We may be a little slower to respond to emails and messages while we sort things out here so please bear with us and we'll pass on more news as we have it.

"Thank you as always for your support. Andy, Szabi and all the Crabmill team."
