Patio Heaters - Fire at the Ivy Restaurant in Manchester, UK

A large fire broke out at the new The Ivy restaurant in Manchester


It is thought the fire in the three-storey building on Hardman Square in the city centre started from a patio heater on an outdoor terrace. Posts on social media showed the fire burning through the roof of the building. Fire crews said it was out by 18:20 GMT.



The Ivy said it was repairing the top-floor damage and would make a statement within 24 hours about reopening. The restaurant, which opened in November, is run by Caprice Holdings Ltd, which runs London's celebrity haunt The Ivy.

The Ivy Spinningfields is home to two restaurants, a roof terrace and two private dining rooms, according to its website. A spokesman for Ivy Collection said: "The fire at the Ivy Spinningfields was quickly and very efficiently contained by the excellent work of the fire services." He said it was "limited to part of the roof", adding that all other areas of the building were unaffected.
