Medieval Coventry building damaged by takeaway blaze
A medieval building has been damaged by a fire which broke out at a takeaway.
About 25 firefighters tackled the blaze in Spon Street Coventry, which began at 15:30 GMT on Tuesday.
The "severe fire" had spread to the roof space of the timber-built property, West Midlands Fire Service said. Investigators are working to establish the extent of the damage.
Group Commander Mick Birch said he believed the source of the fire was a frying range inside the takeaway.
Fire engines from Coventry, Foleshill, Canley, Hay Mills and Billesley were sent to the scene.
