As firefighters made their way to the scene a resident in an upstairs flat put out the flames.

Steve Duncan, watch commander at the town’s Wellfield Road station, said: “He grabbed a towel, wet it and put it onto the flames. Thanks to his very quick thinking, no one was injured.

“There was a lot of smoke.”
