Four derelict houses on fire in Rugby

A row of four derelict houses near the old Imperial Hotel in Oxford Street, Rugby, were found in fire this afternoon (Sunday December 4).

Fire crews received several calls just after 3pm alerting them to the fire.

The two fire engines that attended found the row of terraced houses completely ablaze, and crews had to withdraw from the buildings themselves because of fears they might collapse.

Crews are still tackling the blaze.
