A fire has broken out at a pub in Newport with thick black smoke billowing from the building.
Fire fighters were called to the Open Hearth pub, in Ringland, at around 2pm to reports of a fire.
At present there are fire crews from Maindee, Malpas and Duffryn and an aerial appliance crew from Cardiff Central.
Officers from Gwent Police are also present and have set a cordon up around the fire.
