Scottish Fire and Rescue Service was called to attend reports of a fire in a static caravan at a rural address just outside Keith this morning (28 January 2015).

The call was received at 5.21am and appliances from Keith and Fochabers were sent to the scene.

The sole male occupant managed to get himself out but not without suffering burns to his head. He was given oxygen therapy by crews and placed in the care of paramedics.

Firefighters in breathing apparatus used a main jet to extinguish the fire and cutting gear to check for signs of hot spots. They then carried out damping down operations.
