The Grecian has caught fire this evening

Fire crews attended as smoke rose from the takeaway

The Grecian has caught fire this evening.

8 fire engines and 6 police vans attended the fire at every UWE student's favourite takeaway as flames broke out just before 7pm tonight.

The junction of Cromwell Road remains cordoned off, however the fire is under control.

Charlotte, a third year UWE student, who walked past the scene at 8.30pm, told The Tab UWE: "There were loads of emergency services all the way up the road and groups of people were gathering around trying to get close to Grecian's to see what was going on.

"They said nobody had been hurt though, which is good".
