Across Scotland, firefighters had responded to more than 600 incidents by 11pm.
An SFRS spokesman said: “People who chose to attend organised Bonfire Night events helped to protect their communities by ensuring firefighters were able to quickly get to real emergencies.
“Initial figures indicate a quieter than usual shift for SFRS crews on duty this Guy Fawkes night.”
Deputy Chief Officer Alex Clark said: “Our crews were needed at incidents across Scotland and many of the 999 calls related to bonfires that were unsupervised or endangered homes and other buildings.
“While bonfire-related activity means this is typically the service’s busiest night of the year, it’s important to remember that firefighters must also be ready to respond to the full range of emergencies where they may be required.
“Our frontline crews and operations control personnel are incredibly dedicated and their professionalism and skill were crucial to protecting communities throughout the country.
“Everyone who chose to attend an organised event this year played their part in helping to keep themselves, their families and their communities safe.”Click here for a full photo gallery of Dundee fireworks
