A man has been treated for smoke inhalation after a fire on Portland which was started by a candle.
Fire crews were called to the property in Fortuneswell around 11.30am yesterday morning.
The fire was out on arrival and crews took a man out of the property who was treated by paramedics at the scene.
It’s thought the fire was started by a candle falling over on a wooden chair.
