A man has been rescued after a fire in a bedsit.
When crews arrived at the premises they found a number of the occupants already out of the property. They had self- evacuated after the fire alarm activated.
Two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus tackled the fire in the bedroom and a man was treated for smoke inhalation.
An investigation into the cause of the fire found it was started deliberately. A man has been arrested.
