On Wednesday morning, fire crews in West Sussex were busy attempting to douse the roaring flames at the Junction Pub in Burgess Hill. Thankfully the pub has been closed for a rather long time so no damage to business was incurred, nor was there anyone living in the building.
An uncomfirmed rumour is that a developer wanted to build lots of flats on the land, but had planning permission refused. Would a large piece of empty land due to a bulldozed pub help their cause?
Local videographer Eddie Howland was at the scene and captured the hunky fireman hard at work with their hoses.
To see what the Junction looked like before it mysteriously caught fire, then take a look at Part 2 of our Burgess Hill Pub Guide.
