A MAN was taken to hos­pi­tal with a head in­jury af­ter a fire near a scout hut.

Fire­fight­ers from Mac­cles­field were called to the small fire on land at the back of the scout hut on Sta­tion Street, Mac­cles­field, last Thurs­day at 6.55pm. The fire grew from an bon­fire which was not as­so­ci­ated with the scouts. Paramedics from North West Am­bu­lance Ser­vice at­tended af­ter re­ports of a man un­con­scious at the scene. He was taken to Mac­cles­field Hos­pi­tal with a head in­jury, although it is not known how he be­came in­jured.

He was also given oxy­gen treat­ment for smoke in­hala­tion by the fire­fight­ers at the scene.

A spokesman for Cheshire Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice said the fire did not af­fect the scout hut build­ing and that no scouts were in­volved or in­jured.

She said: “It was a bon­fire which got out of con­trol on some land near to the scout hut.”
