A man needed oxygen after inhaling smoke in a kitchen fire in Blackpool last night.
Firefighters called to the incident in Devonshire Road gave the casualty first aid before paramedics arrived.
A fire brigade spokesman said: "The man had inhaled smoke and we gave him oxygen therapy. He was later taken to hospital."
Apart from heavy smoke-logging, the blaze, caused by a chip pan left on the cooker, caused only minor damage.
