Firefighters were called out to deal with a blaze in a Douglas industrial unit overnight.

Crews from Douglas and Laxey were mobilised to reports of a fire at a garage on Demesne Road at about 1.15am today (Saturday).

They arrived to find a developing fire.

Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus used hose reels and jets to bring the fire under control quickly and confine it to an area of one room.

Crews then worked with the Manx Utilities Authority to isolate damaged power cables and make the building safe before leaving the scene at about 3.50am.

The cause of the fire is being investigated by fire officers but it is not thought to be suspicious.
