The Oban Times - - News -

A 58-YEAR- OLD man has died fol­low­ing a fire at a flat on Ma­caulay Road, Stornoway.

Po­lice at­tended the scene on Satur­day (July 1) at 7.50pm along with per­son­nel from the Scot­tish Fire and Res­cue Ser­vice who ex­tin­guished the blaze.

The man is yet to be for­mally iden­ti­fied but his next of kin have been made aware. No- one else was in­jured. De­tec­tive In­spec­tor Richard Baird said: ‘A joint in­ves­ti­ga­tion with the fire ser­vice will be car­ried out. In­quiries are at a very early stage.

‘As is stan­dard, a re­port will be sub­mit­ted to the procu­ra­tor fis­cal.’
