Pen­sioner un­hurt af­ter fire

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - NEWS -

A woman is un­ac­counted for fol­low­ing a se­ri­ous fire at a house in In­ver­ness.

Po­lice said ini­tial in­quiries sug­gest the 71-year-old who lived there was in the prop­erty at the time of the blaze. Emer­gency ser­vices were called to the scene at a house on Island Bank Road at 1.55am yes­ter­day.

Fire­fight­ers ex­tin­guished the blaze, how­ever of­fi­cers have not been able to en­ter the build­ing due to “ex­ten­sive struc­tural dam­age”.

The woman’s next of kin have been told of the sit­u­a­tion.

Po­lice are car­ry­ing out a joint in­ves­ti­ga­tion with the fire ser­vice to es­tab­lish what hap­pened.
