AN elderly man and a woman were treated for smoke inhalation following a flat fire in East Lothian yesterday.

The fire broke out in a third- floor flat in Bay View, Port Seton, at about 5pm. A man, thought to be 80 years old, and a woman aged around 45 were treated by paramedics at the scene.

A spokeswoman for Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue Service said: “The fire was extinguished prior to our arrival and all persons were accounted for. We had two breathing apparatus in use for venting purposes.”

Three fire appliances from Musselburgh, Tranent and Newcraighall attended the scene.
