One person at the scene said: “Staff were able to get a fire extinguisher on it at the right time. Another few minutes and the whole building would have gone up.

“They were lucky to stem it before the fire brigade turned up. It was a very close call.”

A further two SFRS appliances attended later in the day to carry out a reinspection.

It is understood that no one was harmed during the blaze. The extent of the damage to the property is not known.
