Firefighters were called to a flat fire this morning.

On arrival crews reported that the flat, which is on the ground floor of a two-storey building and measures around 10 metres by 15 metres, was completely smoke logged.

Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire by 12.21pm. Fire crews used thermal imaging cameras to ensure that there were no remaining hotspots within the property.

Unfortunately the flat has been completely destroyed. An investigation found that the cause of the fire was deliberate.
