Firefighters came to the rescue of two men who became trapped in a set of flats when a fire broke out last night.
Crews from Scarborough, Filey and Sherburn were called to the flats in Trafalgar Square at around 9.43pm.
A fire had started in the kitchen of a third floor flat, causing fire, heat and smoke damage to the oven, kitchen and remainder of the flat.
Firefighters wearing breathing apparatus rescued one man from inside the smoke-logged property.
He suffered smoke inhalation and was treated by paramedics at the scene.
A second man was also rescued from the fourth floor flat, but North Yorkshire Fire Service said he was uninjured.
The crews responding used four sets of breathing apparatus, a hose reel, lighting and a positive pressure ventilation fan as they put the fire out and cleared smoke from the flat.
A spokesman today said the cause of the fire was believed to be an oven which was left unattended while turned on.
