The fire started early this morning

Around 30 firefighters tackled a blaze that had taken hold of a Glasgow building earlier this morning. 

 

A total of six appliances and a Forward Control Unit were mobilised to Washington Street after the alarm was raised at 3.56am on Friday, 10 March. 

 

Scottish Fire and Rescue Service crews arrived to discover the fire affecting the roof of the two-storey building. 

 

It was attacked externally by two powerful water jets as eight firefighters entered the building dressed in protective breathing apparatus to eventually bring it under control by 4.56am.

 

The fire has now been extinguished. There are no casualties. 

 

Firefighters remain at the scene dampening down hot spots and will thereafter carry out salvage operations.
