    The second pub in the UK to be awarded a Michelin star has been burnt down in a devastating fire.

    The Star Inn at Harome was destroyed by a fire Wednesday night (November 24), as North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Services battle out to blow out the blaze which swept through the much-loved pub.

    During the height of the blaze, emergency services had nine crews at the scene, but this has now been reduced to seven.

    As of 7 am this morning (November 25), Emergency crews are still working to contain the fire, the Yorkshire Post reports.

    A spokesperson for North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service stated they are unable to determine the damage to the property as she expects crews will still be battling the fire for a while.
