A man was treated for smoke inhalation after a serious fire swept through a row of terraced houses.

The blaze broke out in an upstairs cupboard around 3 p.m. on Thursday and quickly spread to the roof of the building in Stoneywood, Denny.

The fire was attended by two appliances from Stirling and Falkirk, but due to its intensity a further four appliances from Stirling, Larbert, Cumbernauld and Bo’ness were called out.

The blaze was brought under control by 5.50 p.m.

A specialist high-reach platform from Dunfermline was dispatched to help contain the fire as firefighters wearing breathing apparatus put out the flames.

One man was treated for smoke inhalation by paramedics at the scene.

A fire service spokesman said the cause of the blaze was being investigated.
