“It is always sad to see historic buildings like this damaged, but I would like to especially thank Dan Channon, Station Manager at ESFRS who dealt with the incident quickly and spoke to me on-site after the fire early Saturday morning.”

The fire at The George in Rye was swiftly combatted by ESFRS who quickly arrived with 8 fire engines in the early hours of Saturday morning. ESFRS and the insurance company for The George in Rye will now begin a joint investigation into the cause of the fire.
