Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) this morning attended a house fire at a house in Whitehills Close, Cove, Aberdeen.

The call was received by operations control at 9.59am and two appliances from Altens and one from Central Fire Station in Aberdeen attended.

Crews were faced with a fire in kitchen within the two-storey property. They searched the property and led two occupants to safety. One other person had already managed to self-evacuate prior to SFRS arrival.

Firefighters in breathing apparatus used a hose reel jet to extinguish the fire and then a PPC (Positive Pressure Ventilation) fan to ventilate the property.

The cause of the fire is not known at this time and the fire investigation team is currently at the property.
