There was no further information available. 

The main pub closed in 2020, while the hotel floors have remained unused for many more years.

There have been repeated calls from locals residents for the “eyesore” to be demolished.

Council chiefs have said hard work is still going on to resolve the situation of the former hotel while leading politicians have clashed over accusations of “dilly, dally and delay”.

A leading council officer warned the derelict Golden Eagle was “complicated” as Conservative and Labour leaders disagreed about the handling of the project. Stockton Council has announced work will begin on designing a new swimming pool at the site of nearby Phoenix House, which is being demolished.

Cleveland Police have been contacted for further details of the fire.
