Flames reach 40ft from Peterborough building fire

A fire in a derelict Cambridgeshire building in which flames reached up to 40ft (12m) high is thought to have been started deliberately.

The fire service were called to Breaks Snooker Club in Eastfield Road in Peterborough in the early hours.

Seven crews were sent to the scene and spent several hours putting out the fire in the building which was well alight, a fire service spokesman said.

The building was severely damaged, he added.
