Fire fighters tackle another blaze in Aberdeen

Eight fire crews tackled a major blaze at a former health and safety building in Aberdeen early this morning.

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service were called to the disused office block at Causewayend at around 2am and worked at the scene for more than two hours.

It was the second major fire to happen in the city within 12 hours.

Two shops in the Rosemount area were also destroyed when a fire started around 2pm yesterday.

No one was seriously hurt during either incident.

A spokesman for the fire service said that due to the size of the former HSE building and the internal condition, eight appliances and a height vehicle were required to bring the fire under control and to “a successful conclusion”.

An incident support vehicle was also at the scene.

“Firefighters worked in very difficult conditions to contain the fire to the first floor of the building using eight breathing apparatus and two jets,” he said.

“The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.

“There was no one inside the building.”
