There was a fire on Sunday morning at the Magazine Hotel Pub in New Brighton. The Pub is currently closed "for some weeks". Does anyone know how the fire started? This was my favourite local, a very traditional Pub which somehow managed to survive the "renovations" visited upon so many other old, established pubs by the pubcos in the 70s and 80s.

Only buzz I got was that it was an electrical fire.

We used to frequent it often when we lived on Seabank Road. Pity it's been fire damaged, I hope it is sympathetically restored although that's probably unrealistic.

It does appear the fire was electrical. The story I got was that the underground mains supply cable failed, but I have not seen the landlady to ask and don't want to bother her.

Hope we don't lose this Pub. My granddad, my dad, my stepdad, and I all drank/drink in there so it has sentimental value for me. Mike

i also heard that it was an electrical fire.Apparently at the same time as the fire some house alarms in the area went off too.Possibly due to an electrical surge of some kind.
