A 13-month-old girl has been flown to hospital in Glasgow after being rescued from a house fire in the Highlands.
Firefighters were called to a report of the blaze at MacDonald Drive in Lossiemouth, Moray, at around 3.45am on Thursday.
The toddler was one of three people in the house who were all initially taken to Dr Gray’s Hospital in Elgin for assessment.
A 35-year-old man was taken by road ambulance to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and a woman, 31, was also expected to be transferred there later on Thursday.
They are all described as being in a serious condition.
Detective Inspector Norman Stevenson said: “Our enquiries are at an early stage in establishing what caused the fire.
“A joint investigation by ourselves and the fire service is due to take place today, following a structural survey.
“The three occupants of the house are all in a serious condition and our thoughts are with them and their family at this time.
“MacDonald Drive, between St Margarets Crescent and Rinnes Drive, is currently closed to allow access for emergency services vehicles.
“The local community is thanked for their patience and understanding whilst we and partner agencies carry out our enquiries.”
The Scottish Ambulance Service (SAS) sent three crews, two response units and a paramedic practitioner to the scene in the early hours of Thursday.
A spokesman confirmed the girl had been airlifted to the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow.
He said: “We received a call at 0348 hours to attend an incident on MacDonald Drive, Lossiemouth.
“We despatched three ambulance crews, two special operation response units and a paramedic practitioner to the scene and transported two patients – a male and a female in their 30s to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary.
“An infant was also transported to Dr Gray’s Hospital before being airlifted to Glasgow’s Royal Hospital for Children.”
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) said six fire engines and other support appliances attended the incident.
A neighbouring property was also evacuated as a precaution.
