Blaze at beauty salon causes severe damage


STAFF and residents were evacuated after a fire broke out at a beauty salon.

Firefighters rushed to the Studio One premises, in Lenzie Road, Kirkintilloch, yesterday at around 5pm.

Two members of staff at the beauty and skincare salon and residents from the flats above were evacuated.

A spokesperson for Kirkintilloch Fire Station said the blaze had started in a treatment room after a highly flammable liquid spilled next to a candle.

Crews from Kirkintilloch and Bishopbriggs spent two hours at the scene.

No-one was injured during the fire, but one of the rooms was severely damaged and the full premises was badly hit by smoke.
