Three crews battled a steading blaze in Aberdeenshire.
Appliances from Ellon and Aberdeen were sent to the scene south of Ellon after the alarm was raised at 6.50pm.
A fire spokesman said a 25 by 15ft steading, with bales inside, was “well alight” and jets were used to bring it under control.
He said one pump remained at the farm and was going to stay there through the night on a “watching brief”.
A police spokesman said they have been made aware and officers were sent to the scene.
