Electrical fault leads to pub fire in Bicker
A fire has caused extensive damage to the popular Ye Olde Red Lion pub in Bicker today.
Crews from Donington, Billingborough and Boston were called to the pub, in Donington Road, Bicker, just before 11.10am.
Two water hose reels, four thermal imaging cameras, six extinguishers and a fan were used to tackle the fire and clear smoke.
However, the incident damaged a utility area and its contents, floorboards in a bathroom and left smoke damage to the whole building.
A statement posted by pub managers on social media said: "Due to an electrical fault and fire, we are having to close this weekend.
"The emergency services have been fantastic and the main thing is that no one was injured.
"However, the damage to the background floor is a little worse than we thought."
