Kitchen fire hits flat

Have your say

FIREFIGHTERS had to break into the home of a woman who had left a grill pan on, setting fire to her kitchen.

The incident took place just after midnight at an address on Gorgie Road.

Neighbours reported hearing a smoke alarm from a first-floor flat. The only way fire crews could gain entry was to break in, firefighters said today.

The 38-year-old was taken to safety and treated by paramedics at the scene.
