Hotel guests were evacuated following a fire at the Olde Bell in Hurley this morning.
A small fire in the roof of the High Street hotel forced about a dozen customers out of their rooms at about 9.20am.
Two fire crews from Maidenhead attended and extinguished the fire and cleared smoke from the building. Watch manager Nigel Flatt said: “It was a bit of an inconvenience for some of the guests on a Sunday morning.
“Some of them were in still in their dressing gowns.”
The fire is believed to have been caused by a faulty light fitting.
Firefighters were later called to Gas Lane in Maidenhead to deal with a kitchen fire which is believed to have started in a dish washer at about 11am.
