Harrogate fire: pets 'unaccounted for'
7:27am 19th March 2014
(Updated 7:27am 19th March 2014)
Fire crews have spent the night damping down a fire which started at an Italian restaurant in Harrogate.
The blaze, which broke out at around 11.30 am at Prezzo on Albert Street, spread to four flats with a number of others affected by smoke.
No one was hurt in the incident but a number of pets, including cats and other small animals, remain 'unaccounted for'.
Jessica Scott had been told to stay away from her flat above the restaurant.
She was forced to watch helplessly knowing she had a rabbit and two hamsters inside:
“I have pets in there, I've had my window open and I don't know what the damage is going to be.
“I'm very concerned about my rabbit, the fire seems to be getting worse. It's right over my roof, it's horrible. I just don't know what I'm going to go to later.
“We've been evacuated and we're not allowed near the flat. It's really awful.”
One fire crew and the aerial ladder platform remain at the scene this morning.
A warning to shut windows to avoid potentially harmful smoke and fumes has now been lifted.
Officers from North Yorkshire Police are assisting fire crews with a cordon that will remain in place.
