FIREFIGHTERS were called to a blaze at a Scarborough pub late on Monday evening.
A beer cooler caught fire in the basement of the Golden Last pub in Eastborough at around 11:40pm.
Two fire engines from Scarborough attended the incident.
The Scarborough crews were accompanied by one appliance from Filey.
The pub was closed to members of the public at the time that the fire was reported.
Firefighters were called when someone still inside the pub smelled smoke coming from the basement.
A spokesperson for North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said that 100 per cent fire damage had been caused to the beer cooler.
There was also 100 per cent smoke damage in the basement and 30 per cent smoke damage on the ground floor of the pub, the spokesperson told the Evening News yesterday.
Firefighters used six breathing apparatus, two hose reel jets, a ventilation fan and a thermal imaging camera in their effort to extinguish the fire.
They also used a door-breaking device.
Firefighters said they believed the fire had started accidentally.
The Golden Last was open to customers as usual yesterday.
There are not believed to be any ongoing issues caused by the fire.
