Smoke forces evacuation of British Beer Company
HYANNIS - The British Beer Company pub on Main Street in Hyannis was evacuated after smoke was reported in the basement just before 11:30 PM. Firefighters determined a carelessly discarded cigarette had started a small fire in the rear of the building which caused the smoke to seep in.

Ironically CWN covered an nearly identical incident where part of the rear door caught fire as shown in this file photo almost a year ago to the date, December 5th, 2005. Posted on 12/03 at 12:00 AM.
