House fire, Edinburgh

House fire, Edinburgh
A 63-year-old man was taken to hospital suffering from smoke inhalation after a house fire in the Liberton area of Edinburgh on Sunday evening (2 September).
Firefighters from Liberton and Tollcross responded to reports of a house alight at Jean Armour Avenue shortly before 7.45pm.
They discovered a fire in the bedroom of a single storey mid terrace bungalow. The blaze was extinguished by two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus and using a high-pressure hose reel.
The male casualty was transferred into the care of the Scottish Ambulance Service who took him to hospital after he experienced breathing difficulties because of the smoke.
The fire was put out at 8.05pm and crews spent some time cutting away damaged areas of the room where the fire occurred.
