A FLAT fire in Mansfield in which a teenager was hurt is being treated as suspicious.

Fire crews from Mansfield, Blidworth and Edwinstowe were called out at 4.09pm on Sunday to Shirland Drive.

A 19-year-old woman was taken to King’s Mill Hospital, where she received treatment.

No one else was injured and no other residences were affected by the incident. Firefighters used a hose reel, breathing apparatus and a ventilation fan to put out the flames, although the damage was described as “superficial” and involved fixtures and fittings.

Witnesses, or anyone with any information, is being asked to contact Nottinghamshire Police on 101 or call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
