A FIRE left a man needing medical treatment.
Now police are appealing for information and witnesses as they search for the person who caused the blaze.

The fire is believed to have begun at a ground floor property and spread to an adjoining property, the home of a 50-year-old man who was treated for smoke inhalation. Other close neighbours were evacuated but no one else was injured.
