This time last year
Residents in Rutherglen were left stunned at the blaze at one of town’s most iconic landmarks.
Blairtum House in Burnside was turned into an inferno on the night of May 6.
The flames and smoke could be seen for miles around as firefighters fought desperately to save the sandstone villa.
It took over three hours to bring the blaze under control while the dying embers were still being put out well into Saturday morning.
Thankfully no-one was hurt in the blaze.
