Firefighters had to rescue two dogs after a blaze broke out in a garage on an Aberdeen street.
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service was called out to a property on Cameron Way in the Bridge of Don with the call received just after 2.15pm.
Five fire engines were required and an investigation into the cause is under way.
A neighbour, who did not want to be named, said: “It was in flames that were as high as the house. None of us went near it. As long as everything is okay, that is the main thing.”
