Fire crews sealed off part of a north-east village as they tackled a fire in a boat shed.
Four appliances were called to a three-storey premises at Macduff Harbour shortly before 10.30am this morning and spent more than an hour getting the incident under control.
A spokeswoman for the service said: “The call was received at 10.26am and we received the stop message at around 11.54am.”
Crews from Macduff, Banff, Portsoy and Aberchirder used a variety of equipment to tackle the flames including breathing apparatus, and two hose reel jets.
The firefighters closed the road while the effort was ongoing.
