Scottish Fire and Rescue Service is still in attendance at a house fire in Woodside Crescent, Nairn.

The call was received by operations control at 12.10pm this afternoon. Two appliances from Nairn and two from Inverness along with the aerial rescue platform from the city was dispatched.

On arrival crews were faced with a well-developed fire in a semi-detached property. Firefighters in breathing apparatus used two main jets to tackle the fire which was threatening to spread to the adjoining property.

Firefighters are also using thermal imaging cameras to check for hot spots. All persons are accounted for and there was no one inside the property at the time.

The incident is ongoing.

Group Manager John MacDonald, who is at the scene, said: "The crews did an excellent job in arduous conditions and ensured the fire did not spread to the adjoining property. They also carried out a full search to ensure no one was inside the property."
