Firefighters were called to the scene of a flat fire this evening after neighbours noticed smoke coming from the windows.
Crews reported on arrival that the entire property, which is situated on the ground floor of a two-storey block of flats, was smoke logged.
The fire was extinguished by 7.30pm. Firefighters used positive pressure ventilation fans to clear the property of smoke, before using thermal imaging cameras to ensure there were no remaining hotspots within the premises.
Unfortunately, the flat has been destroyed.
An investigation into the cause of the fire found that it was caused deliberately.
