The Red Lion public house, High Street, Bridge, Canterbury, Kent, on 10 May 2006,
two weeks before it was due to re-open after a 6-month refurbishment and extension.
At 01.19 hours on Thursday, 11 May, Kent Fire & Rescue Service received the first
of 14 calls to a fire at the premises.
This was the scene minutes after the first attendance of Canterbury’s rescue pump
ladder and pump had arrived. The first jet was quickly got to work but it was immediately
apparent that further resources would be required to control the fire.
