Firefighters were called to reports of a fire in a shop this afternoon.

On arrival crews reported that the shop was completely smoke logged and one man in his thirties was suffering from the effects of smoke inhalation.

Firefighters extinguished the fire, which was caused after a deep fat fryer ignited, by 3.34pm. Crews used positive pressure ventilation fans to remove the remaining smoke from the premises, before checking for hotspots within the shop and neighbouring properties.

The man was left in the care of the Ambulance Service.
