A man in his 60s has been taken to hospital after a house fire in Ormeau overnight.
He was suffering from smoke inhalation after the blaze broke out at a home on McIvor Ct around 10pm.
Six fire crews raced to the scene where they found the single storey home already well involved.
It took them an hour to put the flames out, by which point the house had suffered significant structural damage.
A teenage boy was also treated for smoke inhalation at the scene, but didn't need to go to hospital.
Fire investigators were expected to head back out on Thursday morning, to try to determine the cause of the blaze.
