Guests evacuated after Cambridge hotel fire

Nearly 150 guests were yesterday evacuated from Cambridge's University Arms hotel following a fire on the premises in the early hours.

A total of 12 fire engines from Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Hertfordshire were called to tackle the blaze on the top floor of the building at 6am yesterday.

Luckily there were no casualties, and a Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman confirmed later yesterday that the blaze had been brought under control. The cause of the fire is as yet unknown.

The hotel, on the city's Regent Street, is owned by Melford Capital Partners.
