A police probe has found a fire which ripped through a north-east house was not suspicious.
At the height of the blaze, 25 firefighters were called out to tackle the flames at a property in Rora, near Mintlaw.
The blaze took hold on Friday night at around 11.30pm. Four appliances and a specialised water carrier unit were sent to the scene.
The crews used two hose reel jets, breathing apparatus and an ultra high-pressure lance to extinguish the flames.
Firefighters on the ground reported the fire to be out at around 1.50am on Saturday morning.
According to a spokeswoman for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, the blaze affected the entire building.

However, despite the size of the fire and the destruction caused to the house, no one was injured by the blaze, and everyone was accounted for.
The fire service spokeswoman said: “It was a dwelling fire.
“The whole building was involved. The roof of the building collapsed.
“It was a detached building consisting of two floors.
“All persons were accounted for.”
A probe was launched into the incident, with officers later saying the incident was not the result of foul play.
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “There were no injuries. We are content there are no apparent suspicious circumstances.”
