Residents had to flee their house after a kitchen fire started this morning.
Two fire engines from St Dennis and one from St Columb were sent to a report of smoke issuing from the kitchen of a house at Higher Fraddon, near Indian Queens, at 6am.
An ambulance attended and paramedics treated one person who was suffering the slight effects of smoke inhalation.
Firefighters wearing breathing gear entered the two-storey mid-terraced property to extinguish the fire using one hose.
The occupants had working smoke detectors that alerted them to the fire and, with the help of neighbours were able to evacuate safely.
