Fire at Coaching House pub in Chudleigh
More than 30 firefighters have been called to a fire at a pub in Devon.
The blaze started at the Old Coaching House on Fore Street, Chudleigh, at about 20:00 GMT on Wednesday.
A hydraulic platform, water bowser and an incident command unit were called to the scene. Crews have been fighting the fire overnight.
At least two floors of the three-storey building, which dates back to 1808, have been damaged, the fire service said.
Station Manager Matt Johnson, of Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service, said: "When we arrived, I could see that the roof was well alight and also starting to spread to the floor below.
"The flames were reaching into the sky some 10m [33ft] above the roof."
There have been no reports of any injuries.
An investigation was to be carried out into the cause, and a building control officer was to examine the structure, which has 14 guest rooms, the fire service said.
Fore Street was closed in both directions.
