Pair in hospital after Edinburgh kitchen fire

Two people have been taken to hospital as a precaution following a kitchen fire at a flat in Edinburgh.

The blaze broke out just before 22:00 on Wednesday at the second-floor property in Wardlaw Terrace.

The man and woman managed to get out of the flat themselves before firefighters arrived to extinguish the blaze.

The fire service said the pair were taken by ambulance to the city's Royal Infirmary as a precautionary measure.
