More than 50 firefighters have been sent to tackle a blaze at a disused sheltered housing complex in Port Elphinstone.
Emergency crews were sent to the facility on School Road just before 1.45pm this afternoon.
The 7,800sq ft home, which was run by Blythewood, has been empty for 18 months.
A Police Scotland spokesman described the building as being “well ablaze,” with flames covering the ground and first floors of the property.
No-one has been injured and the flames are not expected to spread to any other properties.
A fire service spokeswoman confirmed that two fire engines were initially sent to the scene, with a further seven pumps and a number of other support vehicles also in attendance.
In total, 52 firefighters are tackling the blaze.
The spokeswoman said: “We are currently in attendance at a fire in a disused building in Inverurie.
“We were alerted at 1.42pm.
“We mobilised a number of fire appliances to the scene at School Road.
“There are no casualties and crews are working to extinguish the flames.”
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Police Scotland North East Division and Scottish Fire and Rescue Service are currently in attendance at a derelict building fire on School Road, Port Elphinstone, Inverurie and would ask that members of the public avoid the area.”
