A woman has been taken to hospital following an overnight fire in a Lochaber home.

Firefighters were called to a blaze in a bungalow in Roy Bridge just after 2.20am.

A spokeswoman for the service said that 40% fire damage had been caused to the roof space of the property, while there is smoke and water damage to the rest of the building.

She confirmed that a woman had been taken from the property and had been taken to hospital, believed to be as a “precautionary” measure.

The fire crew, made up of two appliances from Fort William, left the scene at 6.05am.
