Man burned in bedroom fire in Edinburgh

A man is being treated in hospital for burns to his hands and feet following a fire at his home in Edinburgh.

The 28-year-old man managed to escape the fire at his two-storey semi-detached house in East Barnton Gardens, at about 0350 BST.

The man, who was taken to Edinburgh Royal Infirmary, was also treated for the effects of smoke inhalation.

Ten firefighters tackled the blaze in the bedroom on the first floor of the house for an hour-and-a-half.
