Firefighters were called to smoke from a first floor flat window on Institute Road in Swanage last night. Three fire appliances from Swanage and Wareham were sent to the scene as it was reported someone was still inside the building.

A passer by had talked the occupant out of the flat prior to the arrival of the Service, so firefighters in breathing apparatus quickly tackled the fire with a hose reel and main line.

The male occupant was treated for smoke inhalation at the scene.

The fire, which is believed to have started accidentally when an electric heater fell over, resulted in severe fire damage to a five square metre area of flooring and smoke and heat damage to the rest of the flat.
