Scottish Fire and Rescue Service remain at the scene of a large shed fire at a farm north west of Perth.

Dundee Control received a call at 9.39pm last night (23 September 2014) reporting a large fire in a steel framed hay shed at Pittendynie Farm, Moneydie.

Five appliances were sent to the scene including three from Perth, one from Dunkeld, one from Crieff and two command support units from Dundee, one from Blackness Road and a second from Balmossie.

When crews arrived they were faced with a well-developed fire. The shed contained approximately 300 round bales of straw and one mechanical excavator.

Firefighters fought the fire in two sectors using two hose reel jets. They brought the fire under control by 6.58am this morning and crews remain on scene to monitor the fireground and carry out damping down operations.
