Fire crews were called after a town’s bonfire got out of control.
The incident took place at the organised Gadle Braes display in Peterhead on Tuesday.
Witnesses described the fire spreading to lampposts, with firefighters having to step in.
One Scottish Fire and Rescue Service appliance was already there on standby, but crews required back-up just before 8pm.
The blaze was brought under control by responders using one jet and a hose reel jet.
They were stood down at 12.30am, the service confirmed. It marked the second year in a row firefighters have had to intervene at the town’s bonfire gathering.
Along with lampposts, spectators said windows were also damaged due to the fire.
