Fireifighters were last night called to put out a blaze in a kitchen at the Mid-Atlantic Wellness Institute in Devonshire.

Two vehicles and eight firefighters responded to the 8.49pm call after flames and smoke were seen coming out of the kitchen at the hospital.

Firefighters quickly entered the kitchen area on the lower floor wearing self-contained breathing apparatus to extinguish the blaze using water from the fire appliance. After the fire was extinguished the kitchen was ventilated to remove the smoke. The fire was in found to be in a freezer.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by a Fire Service investigator.
