FIREFIGHTERS are tackling a fire at a disused pub in Griffithstown near Pontypool.

Fire crews were called to the former Masons Arms on Station Road at 3.33pm, where they found flames on the first and second floor. The fire has since broken through the roof.

South Wales Fire and Rescue Service (SWFRS) said there were no people injured but are not yet able to say how it started.

Six SWFRS vehicles from Malpas, Cwmbran, New Inn, Aberbargoed, and Cardiff Central are at the scene.
