Six treated for smoke inhalation after Edinburgh flat fire
Six people have been treated for smoke inhalation after a fire in an Edinburgh tenement.
Emergency services were called to the scene at a four-storey block in Brougham Place in the city centre at around 6.50am on Saturday.
The fire service said a blaze in the stairwell had caused “heavy smoke logging” and trapped people in upper-level flats.
A turntable ladder was used to rescue six people from second and third-floor properties in the block.
They were all given oxygen by fire crews before being passed to paramedics who took them to hospital for further treatment.
