Residents evacuated after fire breaks out in Dudley flats
Residents were evacuated after a fire broke out at a block of flats in Dudley.
Firefighters battled the blaze at a former pub that had been converted to flats on Trindle Road, last night.
Investigators said the fire was caused by an "overloading of electrics".
Everybody got out safely and no-one was injured, the fire service said.
Crews were called just before 6pm and remained at the scene until around midnight.
A West Midlands Fire Service spokesman said: "We were called to a fire at a public house which has been converted into seven flats.
"People had to be re-homed temporarily while the fire was brought under control.
"There were no injuries and no persons trapped. Five fire appliances were in attendance."
