Fire chiefs said the incident is a stark reminder that fire can strike anywhere, as they stressed the importance of taking precautions to prevent a blaze taking hold.
Strathclyde Fire and Rescue Service urged every resident to make sure they have a working smoke alarm.
Assistant chief officer Lewis Ramsay said: "In the event of a fire, a smoke alarm will give you and your family vital life-saving minutes to escape safely. Every household in Strathclyde should have at least one working smoke alarm.
"If you, or someone you know - a neighbour, friend, or family member - doesn't have a working smoke alarm, I would urge you to fit one immediately or call Strathclyde Fire and Rescue on 0800 0731 999.
"We will supply and fit long life smoke alarms and a heat alarm free of charge."
