Man and woman rushed to hospital after fire shuts down Ayrshire street

Early this morning, a sizable emergency response arrived in Stewarton.

A fire that started early this morning at a set of apartments in Stewarton has sent a man and a woman to the hospital.

Dunlop Street in the town was closed by emergency services just after midnight today.

After the fire broke out on the top level and neighbors had to be evacuated, the two were taken to Crosshouse Hospital.

Four fire engines, two ambulances, two quick response paramedics, and a significant police presence were observed early this morning by an eyewitness at the area.

The man and woman engaged in the fire are not known to be in good health, according to officials.

Specialized fire investigators and police are still on the site more than 12 hours after the fire started.

Along with the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service vehicle from the fire investigation unit, one police van has been seen on Dunlop Street.

The building in question has a melted window frame, and the surrounding brickwork has black charring, demonstrating the strength of the fire.

Since then, locals have been permitted to go back to their houses.

According to police, the inquiry into the fire’s cause is still ongoing.

A spokesman for Police Scotland stated: “On Sunday, February 4, just after midnight, police were alerted to a complaint of a fire in flats on Dunlop Street, Stewarton.

“An ambulance sent a man and a lady to Kilmarnock’s Crosshouse Hospital for medical attention.

The fire has been put out by the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service. Although occupants were evacuated from the building out of caution, they have already returned.
