The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service was alerted at 10.59am on Saturday, February 10 to reports of a dwelling fire.

Operations Control mobilised a number of fire appliances to the two-storey property on Watchman Brae, Bucksburn, Aberdeen, where firefighters extinguished the fire.

Crews provided treatment at the scene to one elderly female suffering from slight smoke inhalation.

SFRS Group Manager David Meldrum was the Incident Commander.

He said: "Scottish Fire and Rescue Service crews responded quickly and effectively to this incident.

"This fire was already well developed but they worked hard to contain it to the dwelling where it started - and then extinguish it.

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the firefighters involved for bringing this incident to a safe and swift conclusion, and also our partners for their assistance."
