Firefighters were called out to Kommune in Castle Market at 10pm tonight to reports of a blaze.

The building was fully evacuated but the fire was later found to be located in a bin store off King Street.

The blaze is believed to have been deliberately started near an extractor system which then brought smoke into the building.
