It is believed the fire was caused by a small portable fuel heater.

Emergency crews from the fire and ambulance services went to the pub and three people were taken to hospital for treatment. The trio - two females and one male - remain in hospital after sustaining serious injuries, which are not believed to be life-threatening but are potentially life-changing.

A scene remains in place while officers continue to investigate the circumstances. However, it is due to be lifted later this afternoon.
