Fire crews were rushed to an early morning blaze at a Dundee tenement this weekend amid reports a man was forced to climb onto the roof to escape the flames.
Six fire appliances and a height unit were called to the city’s Baldovan Terrace shortly before 5am on Sunday after a fire broke out in a second floor flat.
Emergency workers helped three individuals escape from the building before they were passed into the care of the Scottish Ambulance Service.
The area was made safe and crews left the scene shortly before 7am. The condition of the casualties is not yet known.
A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: “We were alerted at 4.49am on Sunday, July 21 to reports of a fire within a second-floor flat on Baldovan Terrace, Dundee.
“Operations Control mobilised six fire engines and a height appliance to the scene, where crews extinguished the fire.
“Firefighters also assisted three casualties to safety from the building, and all three were passed into the care of the Scottish Ambulance Service personnel. Crews left at 6.50am.”
