OAP rescued from blaze

Have your say

AN elderly woman had to be led to safety after a fire started in her West Lothian home.

The woman, who lives at the Manswood Court Sheltered Housing block in Whitburn, had accidentally left one of her cooker rings on, which ignited a nearby kitchen utensil.

Lothian and Borders fire brigade got the call just after 5am today.

She was taken to St John’s Hospital in Livingston suffering from minor smoke inhalation.
