Residents were evacuated after a fire broke out at a block of flats in Dudley.

The fire broke out at a pub which is now flats

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."
