STAFF at Bournemouth's Print Room restaurant were evacuated following a fire this morning.

The blaze, which caused smoke minor damage only, began in a deep fat fryer at around 9.51am.

Two fire engines from Westbourne and Poole attended the incident.

However, quick-thinking staff had doused the flames using fire extinguishers before firefighters arrived.

The engines left the scene at around 10.10am.
