A big blaze has ripped through a tearoom and arcade on St Ives waterside.

Seven firecrews have battled back flames on Wharf Road on Thursday night.

That included back up from Falmouth, St Just, Penzance and Camborne.

A special welfare vehicle was brought in from St Dennis along with the Red Cross.

Police put up a cordon to keep back bystanders in the busy part of town.

There is no word yet on exactly how it started but Investigators are going to want to get in as soon as it is safe enough to do so.

A spokesperson for Cornwall Fire and Rescue said: "At 19:28 Cornwall FRS received a call to smoke issuing from a property in St Ives. On receipt of this call four pumping appliances from St Ives, Penzance and Camborne Community Fire Stations were mobilised along with the aerial ladder platform from Newquay as well as two wholetime officers.

"The two storey building measuring 20m by 15m used as an arcade, coffee and tearoom and residential accommodation was well alight when the crews arrived on scene.

"A further assistance message was received shortly after totalling the pumping appliances to seven in addition to the Command Support vehicle from St Just and Operational Support Vehicle from Falmouth, the Welfare vehicle from St Dennis, the Water Carrier from Helston, and the Red Cross Fire & Emergency Support Service Vehicle.

"The fire was located on the ground floor of the building - six fire fighters wearing breathing apparatus proceeded to fight the fire using two hose-reel jets and one main jet."
