Prescot Pub Unsafe after Tuesday Night Fire, Cause Unknown

By on Wednesday, March 21, 2012

The Imperial Hotel on Bridge Road, Prescot, has been deemed unsafe for forensic investigators following a fire on Tuesday night.

Emergency services were called to the pub, on the corner of Bridge Road and Station Road, at 9.30pm yesterday. Nearby roads were closed as firefighters brought the blaze under control, and the area was reopened at 4.30am this morning.

Merseyside Police report that no one was on the premises at the time of the incident. Police and fire services are looking into the cause of the fire, but a structural engineer says the building is not yet safe for investigators to enter.

The Imperial was still licensed to serve alcohol, although Prescot Online believes it hasn’t been open as a pub for several years.
