Fire crews were called to smoke issuing from a flat in Lacey Court just after 9.30am today (Wednesday, 3rd November).
One fire engine attended from Wilmslow along with one fire engine from Poynton and one from Cheadle.
Upon arrival they isolated the electricity and firefighters, wearing breathing apparatus, used a hose reel jet, a hose reel and a covering jet to put out the fire.
They then used a large fan to disperse smoke, checked for hotspots with a thermal imaging camera and dug out the affected area.
Everyone was accounted for and one man was checked over for smoke inhalation.
The fire is believed to have been in a cupboard housing the electrical consumer unit.
Crews were at the scene for around three hours.
