Firefighters were called to deal with a fire inside an industrial mobile grain dryer at a farm near Conon Bridge, Ross-shire at the weekend.

The call came in at around 10.15pm on Sunday 25 August 2013 and was attended by one appliance from Inverness and one from Beauly.

Firefighters used one hosereel jet to extinguish the fire and cool the dryer down. The teams then had to remove around 8 tonnes of grain from the dryer to make the area safe. They received assistance from the farmer.

Crews finally left the scene at around 12:16am.
