  • 6-28-2012

A man found unconscious in a burning flat in East Lothian has died in hospital.

Firefighters were called to the blaze in a second-floor flat in Dunbar High Street at about 11:00.

A spokeswoman for Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue Service said three crews were at the scene and treated the man before paramedics arrived.

She said: "When officers entered the flat they found a man in his 40s unconscious."

She added: "He was taken outside and given CPR by officers.

"Before the ambulance arrived trained staff also used a defibrillator when it was found he was not breathing."

The man died a short time later in Edinburgh Royal Infirmary.

Police are investigating the cause of the fire.
