A teenager has been charged following a fire at a north-east property yesterday morning.
Three fire appliances attended the blaze at a residential property on High Street in Fraserburgh at about 9.05am.

Now, a 17-year-old man has been arrested and charged in connection with the incident.
He will appear at Peterhead Sheriff Court at a later date.
