Fire destroys landmark Queensland pub
A LANDMARK Queensland pub has been destroyed by fire.
Longreach police inspector Mark Henderson said the Lyceum Hotel, in Longreach in the state's central west, had been completely gutted when authorities arrived around 8.15pm last night but no one was injured and adjoining properties were not damaged.
The hotel had been closed for several months and he believed it was up for sale, Insp Henderson told Queensland Country Life.
"Fire investigators and scientific personnel from Brisbane will be coming out to investigate the circumstances," he said.
