A MAN who died after a cigarette sparked a fire has been named as Grant Sutherland.
The 41-year-old perished in the fire in Niddrie Mill Drive around 1.40am yesterday.
A spokeswoman for Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue said: “The cause was a careless use of a cigarette. The smoke alarm does not seem to have alerted the occupant.”
One neighbour said Mr Sutherland suffered burns in another small fire this year.
Sheena Ferguson, who runs a bakery opposite the flat, said: “I’m heartbroken.”
