Police are appealing for information after a shed was completely destroyed by a fire in a north-east town.
Emergency services were called to a property in the Admiralty Street area of Buckie just before midnight on Monday. The incident is being treated as deliberate.
PC Hector Bryden said: “We are particularly interested in the time between 10.45pm and the emergency services being alerted. Anyone who was in the area during these times and saw anything suspicious is asked to contact police quoting ref. no. CF0266721018. You can also attend at Buckie police station.
“This is a serious offence which could have had devastating consequences had it not been for the response of the fire service. In saying this the shed was completely destroyed and crimes like this can have a real impact. It won’t be tolerated and inquiries are ongoing.”
