Member of the public treated by ambulance crews

Emergency services have been tackling a garage fire in the south of the Island overnight.

Fire crews from Rushen were called out at 2:45am and were faced with a 'well established fire in a domestic garage that contained multiple vehicles and fuel sources'.

Due to the location and size of the incident an additional pumping appliance was called out from Castletown and Malew Station as well as the water bowser from Douglas Station.

The Isle of Man Fire and Rescue service says the neighbouring property was checked using thermal imaging cameras to confirm the blaze hadn't spread.

One person received treatment from paramedics.

Fire crews were on the scene for around three-and-a-half hours.
