Four people managed to get themselves out of a house in the Sighthill area of Edinburgh following a fire earlier today (28 November 2013).

A fire within the kitchen on the top floor of a two storey block in Sighthill was reported to Control at around 7.25am.

Two adults and two children were already outside the property when crews arrived. Firefighters in breathing apparatus used a hosereel jet to extinguish the fire.

The residents were checked over at the scene by paramedics and were thankfully not injured. They did not need to be taken to hospital.

An appliance and a height vehicle from Sighthill attended along with a further appliance from Tollcross.
