Firefighters spent more than nine hours tackling a blaze in 40tonnes of grain on the Black Isle.
It broke out in a silo on Highland Grain Ltd’s site at Tore around 12.15pm yesterday.
Three fire crews were called to the scene, including two from Inverness and one from Dingwall.
A hydraulic platform was also used to allow firefighters to spray water on top of the grain dryer the premises.
And a water bowser was also sent to ensure crews had enough supplies to deal with the incident.
A fire brigade spokeswoman said the silo contained 40 tonnes of grain, adding that cooling jets were in use.
At 6.20pm, the fire appliance from Dingwall left the scene and the other two appliances remained onsite with the hydraulic platform.
Firefighters were still damping down the site and inspecting for any further hotspots at 9.15pm.
Meanwhile, the kitchen of a well-known Inverness pub has been destroyed by fire.
The incident at Scotch and Rye, in Queensgate, happened about 5.45am yesterday morning.
Firefighters used two hose reel jets and four sets of breathing apparatus to extinguish the flames. A thermal imaging camera was also used to check for hotspots.
A fire service spokeswoman said that the automatic fire alarm had alerted crews to the incident.
It is understood that no one was inside the building and no one was injured.
Owner Ken Loades said yesterday that the bar would remain open but the kitchen would be closed for a couple of days.
