UPDATE – Firefighters have now departed the scene. Cause of the fire in the roof has been determined to be from broken down roof insulation exposed to a heat source. The male patient assessed for mild smoke inhalation did not require transport to hospital.

Does anyone know what sort of insulation it would have been?
