Fire crews called as fire at Aberdeen nature reserve reignites

Fire crews have been called to another fire at an Aberdeen nature reserve after it reignited.

Crews have been to the Gramps on four of the last five days due to gorse fires that have reignited.

Three appliances were called to Tullos Hill, and a further appliance attended Kincorth Hill.

A call was made to the Fire Service by Police Scotland, saying that two fires had reignited, at 3.04pm.

The appliances, which were deployed from Altens, used beaters, backpacks and a wildfire unit to battle the blazes.

According to the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, units extinguished the blaze at Tullos Hill, but one appliance remains at Kincorth.
