'Significant fire' extinguished in Douglas

Firefighters still on scene at Regent Street restaurant

Firefighters are dealing with the aftermath of a 'significant fire' in Douglas this morning.

Regent Street was cordoned off just after 3:30am after emergency services received a 999 call alerting them to smoke billowing from a first floor restaurant.

Douglas and Laxey crews tackled the blaze in the kitchen area - which was started by an appliance.

It was extinguished just after 5am.

Officers are still at the scene dealing with hotspots - it's expected the fire will be investigated later today.
