A MAN was treated for smoke inhalation after a fire broke out at a Chipping Sodbury pub last night.

Two fire crews were called to the Royal Oak, on Broad Street, at 4.25am.

The blaze had started in the kitchen of the premises and is believed to have been accidental.

Avon Fire and Rescue Service sent two crews from Yate Fire Station.

Spokesman Darren Bane said: “Two crews responded to reports of a fire which was accidentally started in the kitchen of a public house.

“Four firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used two high-pressure hose reels and two hand-held extinguishers to put out the fire.

“A positive pressure ventilation fan was used to help clear smoke from the property.

“One man was suffering from the effects of smoke inhalation and was given oxygen therapy by fire crews before being handed over to ambulance staff, who took him to hospital.”
