A MAN was given oxygen therapy by fire crews yesterday (Thurs) after he was found in a smoke logged flat in Ilfracombe.

They discovered a small fire in a ground floor kitchen involving a cooking pan but the flat was smoke logged.
A man found at the scene was assessed by the crews and given oxygen therapy until paramedics arrived to assist.
