Fire and emergency crews are on the scene of a major fire at the Tudor House Pub in Esquimalt, on Vancouver Island.

The fire broke out just before 2:30 a.m. PT.

There are no reported injuries but crews have evacuated a neighbouring building.

The Tudor House opened as a gathering place in 1904, but didn't start serving booze until the 1930s.
