Update: Indian restaurant fire


Fire broke out at The Mint restaurant in Mansfield yesterday.

People reported seeing smoke and flames coming from The Mint on Clerkeson Street shortly after 4.30pm.

A spokesperson for Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue Service said: “Firefighters from Mansfield and Ashfield were called to a two-storey property on Clerkson Street, Mansfield at 4.38pm yesterday.

“The fire was initially located on the ground floor and had spread to the first floor and some ducting. A total of six breathing apparatus wearers used hoses and thermal imaging cameras to extinguish the fire. They then damped down and made the area safe.” They had dealt with the incident by 6.22pm.
