One man has been treated by paramedics after a fire in Penzance.

It started in a cooker on the High Street in the early hours of Thursday morning.

15 firefighters from the town and St Just were scrambled just before 12.30am.

The flames had died out when they arrived - but they carried out a safety check and left the man with ambulance crews.

A spokesperson for Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service said: "A wholetime officer, and crews from Penzance and St Just Community Fire Stations, in three pumping appliances, with a total of fifteen firefighters attended a call to a fire in High Street, Penzance, early this morning.

"The fire in the cooker was out on crews' arrival, however a thorough inspection and home fire safety check was carried out by the crews, and the property was ventilated.

"One male was left in the care of the ambulance service.

"Police were also in attendance.

"This incident was accidental and confined."
