Firefighters were called to deal with a fire at a flat in the Marywell Street area of Aberdeen in the early hours of this morning (27 May 2014).

Control received the call at 12.53am and dispatched two appliances from Central Fire Station and one from North Anderson Drive to the incident.

Upon arrival crews were faced with a fire in a flat on the top floor. Firefighters in breathing apparatus used one hosereel jet to extinguish the fire.

Crews then used a PPV (Positive Pressure Ventilation) fan to clear smoke logging from the property and a thermal imaging camera to check to any hot spots.

There was no one inside the property at the time of the fire and everyone from the flat was accounted for. The fire was out by 1.15am.

Scottish Fire and Rescue Service would like to take this opportunity to remind householders they can help prevent fire in their home by organising a free Home Fire Safety Visit.

Crews will visit your home and provide fire safety advice, discuss an escape plan should the unthinkable happen and you do experience a fire in your home and offer you a free smoke detector if your home doesn't have one or it is not working.
