Care home on fire in Pandy Tudur

A fire has devastated the Old Vicarage Care Home near Llanrwst.

The fire has caused “significant” damage to the roof and first floor of the property, although the full extent of the damage is still being assessed.

Crews used ladders and breathing apparatus to reach seven of the residents reported trapped on the ground and first floor of the building.
Six of them were taken to Ysbyty Glan Clwyd to be checked over.
The other 19 residents were evacuated safely with the help of care home staff, paramedics and police.

A joint investigation by North Wales Fire and Rescue Service and the police suggests the blaze was sparked by electrics in a first floor store cupboard.
