‘The fire brigade were called when a gas heater burst into flames but whoever rang told them a person was on fire so they sent ambulances and the fire brigade. 

‘Once it was clear they realised that guests had left without paying any of their bills, it came to around £5,000 in all.’

The fire brigade said that the fire had been extinguished by the time emergency services had arrived and no one was hurt.
