A man has died following a fire in a city tenement.
Nine fire engines and other specialist units went to the scene in McCulloch Street in the Pollokshields area of Glasgow when the alarm was raised at 1.14am on Tuesday.
Residents were evacuated from the three-storey tenement as firefighters tackled the blaze.
Police confirmed on Wednesday that the body of a man was found inside the building.
Local community organisation, The Bowling Green, said that 15 families were displaced due to the fire and launched an appeal on social media to collect clothes and shoes for them.
First Minster Nicola Sturgeon, whose constituency includes Pollokshields, tweeted a message of support on Tuesday.
She wrote: “Really distressing situation for the families affected by this terrible fire in McCulloch Street. I know the Pollokshields community will rally round as it always does.
“My constituency office also stands ready to offer any assistance necessary.”
