He told Stray FM: "What I saw personally was they'd put the blaze out, and there was a lot of smoke. Speaking to someone across the road they told me it was the pizza shop and two flats above the pizza shop.

"Some of the locals posted pictures on social media, it was blatant to see the fire was raging out the front of the property, the whole front face of the property was ablaze with fire coming out through the windows as well.

"The road is closed and there's a number of engines there still on scene."
