A BLAZE at a Leith restaurant was battled by 30 firefighters after flames spread from its kitchen to the roof.

The fire broke out in the kitchen of The Granary on The Shore shortly before 7pm on Saturday.

Eight firefighters in breathing apparatus used high pressure hoses to tackle the blaze, which was also fought from above using two height appliances.

Crews from McDonald Road, Crewe Toll and

Marionville stations and a command support unit from Dunfermline attended the incident.

Firefighters remained at the scene until yesterday morning to ensure the fire did not flare up again.

A spokeswoman for Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said that no casualties were reported.

A Police Scotland spokesman said that officers had closed off nearby roads during the incident.

The Granary used its Twitter account yesterday morning to thank firefighters for their efforts.
