Falmouth Beach Hotel Fire

Today at about 12pm the Falmouth Beach Hotel burned down. It is said that 100 firefighters tackled the inferno, and thankfully there are no reports of any injuries. The Royal Navy helicopter was used to view the state of the  building from above. 

The fire started on the third floor of the 4 storey building but spread throughout the whole property. There were strong gusts of winds which made fighting the blaze very "challenging". All the water from the power hoses were merely tickling the surface of the building because of the strong gales.

By about 3pm the fire was still going. A very unfortunate event, and especially as it is happened just before the summer season!
