Scottish Fire and Rescue Service crews from Bellshill, Coatbridge and Motherwell were called to a kitchen fire in Holytown at around 5.35am this morning (Friday).

A team was sent into the house in Thistle Gardens wearing breathing apparatus and firefighters used a high pressure jet to quickly put-out the flames.

Firefighters gave oxygen therapy to a woman who was suffering from the effects of breathing in smoke and requested the Scottish Ambulance Service attend.

The casualty received a check-up from paramedics at the scene, but did not need to go to hospital.

Firefighters conducted cutting away operations and used a thermal imaging camera to search for any fire spread hidden within the building’s structure, before leaving the scene around 9.35am.
