On arrival, firefighters found a fire on the first floor of a commercial property.

Crews used 12 breathing apparatus for safety, and two high-pressure hose reels and two 45mm jets to extinguish the fire.

They also used a thermal imaging camera to check for hotspots and a positive pressure ventilation fan to clear smoke from the property.

One casualty was conveyed to hospital by ambulance crews for smoke inhalation.

The cause is thought to be accidental.
