Fire crews from across the local area and specialist units from Aberdeen remain on the scene of a fire at Huntly Health centre earlier this evening.

The alarm was raised just after 7pm and on arrival crews discovered a well developed fire in the roof space.

David Meldrum, SFRS group commander Aberdeenshire told The Huntly Express that the fire was brought quickly under control.

He said: The hard work of the crews prevented the fire from spreading.

"There were no injuries to members of the public or crews at the incident.

"The cause of the fire remains to be investigated."

Seven appliances from Huntly, Insch, Dufftown, Keith and Aberchirder were joined by a specialist height appliance and incident command unit from Aberdeen.

Firefighters tackled the blaze from on the roof and from within the health centre building.

The extent of the damage to the internal of the building and any impact on services is not known at this time.
