Fire crew remains at scene of Aberdeen park cafe blaze

Firefighters remain at the scene after a blaze broke out in a popular Aberdeen park cafe.

Crews were called to the cafe in Hazlehead Park shortly before 9pm last night.

A spokesman for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said seven appliances had been sent to the scene along with a high-reach vehicle and a command unit.

Police and fire are on scene

He added: “We were alerted at 8.59pm on Friday, December 11 to reports of a fire within a commercial building in Hazlehead Park, Aberdeen.

“Operations control mobilised six appliances and one aerial rescue appliance to the scene.”

“There are no reported casualties.”

Appliances on the scene were sent from Altens, central station, North Anderson Drive, Dyce and Kintore.

This morning one appliance remains on the scene at the park.

Fire crews at the scene in Hazlehead Park

A police spokesman said officers are assisting fire crews at the scene.

Hazlehead councillor Martin Greig said: “This is a deeply worrying report. The first thought is to hope that no one is harmed.

“The park is such a lovely, peaceful place it is hard to think of a serious incident like a fire taking place.

“The emergency services have responded quickly and always do everything possible to help. The restaurant has become a much-loved refreshment stop and function suite.

“The business will hopefully not be disrupted unduly by this incident. It is such a tough time for the hospitality industry.

“This fire is another unwelcome problem.”
