A second garage is also understood to have been damaged in the fire, which was quickly extinguished by the crew from Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue service.

The other garages in the block, which are all understood to be council owned, were accessed by the firefighters in order to prevent the fire spreading any further.

A spokeswoman said: "The crew have called in the fire investigation team in order to be certain what the cause of the fire was."
