FIREFIGHTERS were called to reports of a property blaze in Falmouth last night.

Two appliances and an officer attended the scene in Oakfield Road at 10pm.

However, on arrival the first crew confirmed that the flames were caused by a small quantity of rubbish outside the property, which was alight.

Firefighters used one hose reel to extinguish the flames and requested the attendance of the ambulance for a man who had suffered some burns.

The fire is believed to be accidental.
