Fire outside St Albans pub

FIREFIGHTERS were called to a St Albans pub last night, after a blaze broke out in its grounds.

Crews arrived at the Spotted Bull pub, on Verulam Road, at around 12.30am.

On arrival they found a fence and an external structure alight.

Two pumps attended and two hose reels and a dry powder extinguisher were used to put the flames out.

The ambulance service was also called as a precaution but was not needed.

It is believed the fire was started accidentally.
