Fire causes extensive damage to historic Forest of Dean hotel

Fire crews from across Gloucestershire were called to Mitcheldean last night after a fire broke out in a derelict hotel.

Crews from Cinderford, Newent, Coleford and Gloucester North were called to the George Hotel on Stars Pitch in the town.

The main hotel building has been derelict for almost a decade having been a once-popular pub and hotel.

The Gloucestershire Fire Service confirmed that crews were still on site on Tuesday morning to extinguish the last areas of fire.

In a tweet at around 9am the service said: Crews from Cinderford, Newent, Coleford and Gloucester North have attended derelict George Hotel in Mitcheldean - fire in building spread to the roof.

"Crews fighting fire from the outside due to it being an unsafe structure, one crew still in attendance extinguishing last areas."

Work to extinguish the fire led to the B4224 through Mitcheldean to be closed on Tuesday morning.
