Firefighters were called to tackle a blaze in a grain dryer at a Angus farm.
Two fire crews from Kingsway East Fire Station received a call just after 8am yesterday after a blaze was reported at New Mains Farm in Tealing.
The fire service said it was called to the scene after a grain dryer had caught fire.
The farm is around a mile from the centre of the village.
It is understood the dryer was not manned at the time of the fire, and no one was injured in the incident.
A spokesman for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) said: “Two appliances from Kingsway East Fire Station were sent to a fire in Tealing in Angus following a call just after 8am today.
“A grain dryer had gone on fire.
“The fire was extinguished by firefighters after around 20 minutes.
“No one was using the equipment at the time of the fire and no one was injured.
“The grain was being decanted into an agricultural trailer.
“The fire service will now investigate what caused the equipment to go on fire.”
The spokesman for the service added: “After the fire was extinguished, firefighters went through the process of cooling the equipment, and inspecting it with farm staff.
“Hotspots on the equipment were being cooled. The owner of the equipment was also advised to have the machinery serviced.”
A neighbour, who did not want to be named, said: “I saw two fire engines going up the road at about 8.20am.
“There was a bit of smoke behind the trees but I couldn’t see too much.
“The fire engines still have not come back from the farm.”
Another resident described seeing “billowing white smoke”.
The person added: “I didn’t know what was going on but it looked serious and I saw that two fire engines had attended the scene.”
Two fire appliances remained at the scene after 9am.
Grain dryers are used to reduce the moisture in different crops.
