It happened at the Grove Court Hotel, Cleator, at about 5.30pm yesterday.

Two fire engines, from Whitehaven and Egremont, rushed to the scene.

A gas range cooker had caught fire in the hotel kitchen.

Firefighters wearing breathing equipment used two hose reel jets and two thermal imaging cameras to tackle the blaze.
