Management at blaze-hit business thank firefighters
By Andrew Merrell | 27th August 2019
Owners of a major hotel and bar business in the Five Valleys have thanked firefighters who tackled a blaze at their venue over the bank holiday weekend.
Family-run 16th century Cotswold hotel and apartments, Egypt Mill, in Nailsworth, called the fire brigade to its river-side site on Saturday at 7pm.
The call to arms came just hours after Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue Services had warned county residents to be mindful of fire risks in the hot weather.
"We are relieved to say that the damage caused by the fire was isolated to the roof over the outdoor kitchen and did not spread to the Ironworks or The Mill," said a post on the Facebook page of Egypt Mill, on the banks of the River Frome.
"We would like to express our thanks to the Fire Service for their assistance and for the patience of Nailsworth residents due to the closure of the road.
"We are pleased to say that no one was injured during the fire, and that we will be open as usual on Bank Holiday Monday, so you can still join us for food and drinks in The Mill.
"Thank you for all of the concern shown by our amazing customers on social media, we will keep you updated when we know more details."
