Fire investigators are searching the building for clues
More than 50 firefighters helped extinguish a blaze in a derelict hotel in Somerset.
Emergency services were called to Highbridge on Tuesday evening after reports of flames being seen coming from the roof.
Initially firefighters believed there may be people sleeping rough inside the former Highbridge Inn.
The cause of the blaze is not known but it is the second fire at the former hotel in a week.
Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service spokesman Nick Matthews said: "We were called to a small incident at the weekend and discovered there were people sleeping rough.
"There is lots of structural damage [to the building] and it is unsafe to send firefighters in at the moment."
Fire investigators are expected to spend much of Wednesday at the scene searching the building
