In photos: Weston hotel fire Burnham fire crews called to

Two fire engines from Burnham-On-Sea fire were called to Weston-super-Mare this evening (Thursday, June 4th) after a major blaze swept through a seafront hotel.

Dozens of firefighters from across the area were battling to save The Royal Pier Hotel near Weston's Birnbeck Pier after it caught alight late this afternoon.

Burnham fire station officer Ian Hazelton told "Both our crews are on standby at Weston Fire Station to help deal with the situation. There are a lot of resources being used."

Witnesses said that one end of the hotel has been devastated by the blaze, with fire teams hoping to stop the fire spreading.
