Police investigate "unexplained" fire in New Inn
A MAN is in hospital suffering from serious injuries after a blaze ripped through a Teesside pub in the early hours of this morning (MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 2).
Police are investigating the cause of the fire at the New Inn pub, on Durham Street, Headland, Hartlepool, which is currently being treated as “unexplained”. Inquiries are ongoing.
The 57-year-old man and a 56-year-old woman were rescued from the burning pub by firefighters wearing breathing apparatus just after midnight.
Fire crews from Hartlepool, Billingham, Stockton and the Headland attended the scene, along with a “command and control” unit from Hartlepool, and police officers.
Firefighters used three jets to tackle the blaze, which caused serious damage to the bar area of the New Inn.
Police officers asked anyone who might have visited the New Inn that evening or anyone who witnessed the blaze to call Detective Constable Martin Skirving on the non-emergency number 101.
