The woman refused hospital treatment

A pregnant woman was treated by paramedics after a fire in a 12-storey high rise in Edinburgh early this morning (thur).

The fire started in a bin chute on the 10th floor of the building and was extinguished using a one line hose.

Five fire engines and two height appliances attended the blaze at Cobbinshaw House in Calder Gardens at 4.23am.

Survival guidance was given to the residents of one flat on the 11th floor due to what the fire service said was a heavy presence of smoke in the stairwell.

The 30-year-old woman was given oxygen at the scene by paramedics, but she refused to go to hospital.

The ambulance service confirmed she signed a refusal form, but did not have information on why she did not want to be taken to hospital.
