Hospital visit for man after fire

A man was taken to Dumfries Infirmary for treatment after a chip pan caught fire in his Kirkcudbright house last Friday.

A neighbour heard a smoke alarm sounding in the Castledykes Road property at around midday and called for help.

Two fire appliances from Kirkcudbright and Gatehouse and one Supervisory Officer arrived and the blaze was confined to the kitchen.
