An elderly man has been seriously injured following a fire at a care home in Dundee.
Dozens of residents were evacuated following the blaze at the Balhousie Clement Park Care Home after the alarm was raised by the care home staff just after 1.20am.
A probe into the cause of the fire is now underway.
Appliances from Macalpine Road and Blackness Road fire stations were dispatched and arrived to find a small fire in a first floor bedroom of the care home.
Two firefighters wearing breathing apparatus entered the bedroom and quickly dealt with the blaze.
An injured male resident was treated by paramedics at the scene and then taken to hospital by ambulance.
At the same time, firefighters assisted care home staff with the evacuation of residents from ground floor bedrooms that had been affected by water from the activation of fire sprinklers on the first floor.
They also carried out salvage work in the affected bedrooms.
There are no suspicious circumstances surrounding the incident and the fire and rescue investigators are working with Police Scotland to establish the circumstances surrounding the blaze.
