Flame-grilled: Chippy Alley takeaway catches fire

Chip cooker blaze leaves clubbers hungry


On Saturday night, a fire broke out down Chippy Alley, in The Red Onion Fish & Chip Shop.

The blaze is said to have begun, appropriately enough, in a chip cooker.

South Wales Fire Service called at 21:34.

Police set up a cordon around the street, which was removed after the fire was extinguished at 22:35 – meaning most clubbers were still queueing outside Glam when the incident occurred.

Workers were busy cleaning up the damage in The Red Onion Fish & Chip Shop when The Tab visited the scene the morning after, with little visible damage done to the shop front.

Fellow chippy alley employees expressed surprise at news of the fire, many of which claimed to have been not working and unaware of the incident occurring at all.

Thankfully, no one was injured.
