Best Western Kenwick Park Hotel in Louth has officially confirmed that a fire at the Health and Leisure Club that took place in the early hours of yesterday morning (Monday, October 13) will result in the facility not being ‘open for the foreseeable future.’

Lincs Fire and Rescue have said the cause of the blaze is thought to have been down to an electrical fault.

Emergency services were called to the hotel’s Health and Leisure Club at the Kenwick Park Estate at around 3am.

While fire crews attended the scene, hotel guests were evacuated purely as a safety measure as the hotel and the health and leisure complex are separate buildings.

The hotel activated its well practised procedures and will work alongside emergency services to ensure a thorough investigation into the cause of the fire is carried out.

The health and leisure club has been destroyed and will not be open for the foreseeable future. The hotel however is operating normally.
