MULTIPLE calls were received in the early hours of this morning (Friday, August 13) reporting a fire within a hotel on Marine Drive, Bude, starting 1.20am.

Two appliances from Bude were immediately mobilised, along with a whole time officer for support. Due to the high number of calls being received and information being passed by callers, two further appliances were mobilised from Holsworthy and Delabole.

The blaze was reported to be under control by 6am.
