The out-of-control blaze that ripped through the CY O’Connor Village Pub in Piara Waters has left a $5 million damage bill.
Firefighters rushed to the scene about 5.30pm yesterday, finding the popular pub “fully involved” in fire with the roof partially collapsed.
Patrons were quickly evacuated amid fears alcohol stored on site would further fuel the fire. No staff or patrons were hurt.
It took firefighters 90 minutes to control the blaze. Police, St John Ambulance and Western Power were also called to the scene.
