THE fast reactions of a steward saved his social club after being alerted by a fire alarm.

Jimmy Egglestone was in bed above Seaton Carew Social Club, in Station Lane, Hartlepool, when he was alerted to the blaze.

He went downstairs to discover thick smoke coming from the bar area of the lounge and was soon on the phone to the emergency services.
