'Arson' Probe at Top Restaurant


Published by the Pirate FM News Team at 7:02am 2nd February 2012.

One of Cornwall's top restaurants is at the centre of a suspected arson attack.

Fourteen firefighters from St Columb and St Dennis were scrambled to Viners near Summercourt in the early hours of Thursday morning.

Investigators are beginning work to find out how it began.

A spokesperson for Cornwall Fire and Rescue said, "Arson puts both the public and firefighters at unnecessary risk. It ties up resources that could be in demand for other more serious incidents. A lot of Cornwall is covered by on-call firefighters so there is also a significant cost to each incident."
