4 appliances and an aerial ladder platform were mobilised to Gastronomy in the High Street at 06:19, with fears a fire had broke out within the commercial property.
The first crew on scene – Newport – were able to quickly confirm that the fire was in fact located in the 1st floor flat, resulting in the incident being scaled back to just 2 appliances.
Breathing apparatus and a hose reel have been used to tackle the fire, which has now been extinguished. The stop message has been relayed.
Island Echo is told that the business is unaffected by this morning’s incident.
The pedestrianised part of the High Street between Market Hill and Town Quay is currently blocked, but is expected to re-open shortly.
