Thanks to Dave Thurlow for the photographs. It apparently started over in the Llechwydd side of the hill but spread rapidly through the night! Thankfully, no one was injured. No news yet of what caused the fire.
Homes had to be evacuated on Church Street, Sue and Kevin, who were also evacuated opened De Nero’s café at 4:30 am for fellow evacuees and the fire service and kept everyone in good spirits with refreshments.
