A MAN was forced to flee from his home following a kitchen fire.
Fire crews were called at 1.45pm to a block of flats at Aberdeen’s Spring Gardens.
Two appliances from Central and one from North Anderson Drive were called to the fire, which happened in a flat on the second floor.
A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said: “There was a fire in the kitchen on the second floor.
“We arrived at 1.45pm and we were finished by 2pm.
“The man managed to get out of the flat himself.”
