FIREFIGHTERS tackled a cooker fire in a Purton hotel right in the centre of the village.

Crews from Cricklade, Swindon and Westlea fire stations responded to reports of a small fire in the kitchen of a building on the village's High Street.

The first call came in to fire control at 7.03pm on Thursday night and fire engines raced to the scene.

A spokesman for the Dorset and Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service said: "Fire crews have attended reports of a fire at a hotel in Purton, Swindon.

"Upon arrival, a small fire located behind a commercial cooker was located.

"This was successfully extinguished using one hose reel jet."
