    Referring to the latest fire, one local resident said: ‘I heard some pops and thought it was fireworks going on outside, but when I went out to have a look I saw the balcony on fire.

    ‘My immediate thought was oh god it’s happening again, although after a short while it became clear that this fire wasn’t as bad as the last one.

    ‘Fire fighters arrived around 11:20am and, to my relief, had been on gone by 12:00오후.

    ‘The fire looked like it was started by some sort of electrical device on the balcony, but luckily it seems to have been contained solely to that area.

    ‘I hope that the damage to his pub isn’t too severe.
