Fire crews called out to another fire at Aberdeen nature reserve

Fire crews have been called back to a north-east nature reserve, after a gorse fire reignited.

One appliance from Altens has been deployed to Kincorth Hill, after two appliances were called to Tullos hill earlier today.

The call was received at 6.22pm tonight.

One appliance remains on scene, using knapsacks and beaters.

A spokeswoman for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said: “The area of gorse that is alight is 30 metres by 30 metres, and there are multiple seats of fire.”

The appliance left the scene of the fire at 7.50pm.
