Fire fighters rescued a man from a building after a fire broke out in the kitchen of flats in Nottingham in the early hours of this morning.
At around 3am today (Sunday, October 29) the alarm was raised at the premises in the Sherwood Rise end of Berridge Road in Forest Fields, after a call was made to the fire service to report a smell of smoke.
Crews from Arnold and Stockhill stations arrived to find a fire had started in the ground-floor kitchen of a three-storey block of flats.
Fire fighters wearing breathing equipment deployed a hose reel jet to put out the flames.
One man was taken to safety by crews and left in the care of East Midlands Ambulance Service.
Positive pressure ventilation fans were then used to clear smoke from inside, before crews left the scene at around 3.45am.
The cause of the fire is not yet known.
