Emmerdale appears to be struck by a devastating fire this Christmas.
The village pub, The Woolpack, will be burned out and boarded up after the festive fire, the reports metro.
According to the publication, the Woolie will be shut down after the inferno.
Viewers already know the pub is in danger after Al Chapman blackmailed himself into buying a stake in the ailing business.
And fans discovered earlier this month how he plans to close the pub business and convert the building into luxury apartments.

He won’t be able to do it on his own either.
It comes after it was revealed that Footballers’ Wives star Ben Richards has joined the cast. He will play Gavin, who works for Al Chapman.
But could Al burn the bar down? Will Gavin help him?
The preview of the Emmerdale Christmas soap sucks the havoc
An ITV Christmas preview of the soap certainly annoyed the businessman’s getting desperate.
The Soap teased, “It’s the time of goodwill, but the sneaky Al Chapman refuses to give out any joy, especially when he’s feeling under so much pressure.
“Will Al find a solution to his financial problems or could his world collapse?”
The tease also reveals changes for some characters with Harriet Finch “hopeful”.
However, the things are not so lucky.
Emmerdale was forever changed by Christmas events
The teaser adds, “With Sam Dingle (James Hooton) desperate to make things better, can he reunite them now?”
While Meena Jutla is still killing people, there is a dark sense of danger in the village.
“The feeling of a threat from the village is still great, but now it’s Dawn (Olivia Bromley) who has to take care of her?
“But could other villagers be in danger before the week is over?”
There will also be a Christmas proposal in Emmerdale – but this is overshadowed by envy.

ITV adds, “It will likely be an emotional Christmas for Dr. Liam Cavanagh (Jonny McPherson), as it is the first without a daughter Leanna.
“But if he enjoys a little too much wine, a drunk Liam will be saved, but could he find himself in a dangerous situation?
“As the dust clears, it quickly becomes clear that this will be a Christmas that the villagers will never forget and will leave some things changed forever.”
Emmerdale says they don’t comment on storyline speculation.
