Assistant divisional officer Tony Clark said: “The fire appears to have been started accidentally by a pile of towels stacked on a shelf too close to a down-lighter in the ceiling.
“The man had inhaled some smoke and was given oxygen therapy by firefighters and then checked over by ambulance crews. By the time we left the scene he seemed to be OK.”
