Fire fighters were called to a north-east harbour this evening after a fire on board a ship.
Three fire crews were sent to tackle the blaze at Peterhead’s South Base port around 7.15pm.
However, the fire had been extinguished by the time they arrived.
A spokeswoman for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service confirmed that no-one had to be rescued from the boat.
A specialist unit from the Scottish Ambulance Service was called as a precaution.
