Bowling alley evacuated as fire breaks out

A bowling alley had to be evacuated this afternoon when fire broke out in its kitchen.

AMF Bowling, on Currock Road, Carlisle, was evacuated around 4.45pm today after a small fryer fire broke out in its kitchen.

Firefighters from Carlisle's two fire stations were scrambled to the scene after the alley's automated fire alarms sounded.

Eyewitnesses say 50-100 people were outside of the bowling alley by the time firefighters arrived to tackle the incident.

Crews used carbon dioxide extinguishers and fire blankets to put out the blaze. They returned to their stations in Eastern Way and Brookside an hour later. 

Everyone was accounted for and no-one was hurt, firefighters said.
