Two fire engines were called out to tackle a fire in the Ballumbie area of Dundee on Wednesday night.
Rubbish and wooden pallets caught fire on Aberlady Crescent at 9.24pm.
A spokeswoman for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said: “We received a 999 call from a member of the public to tell us about a secondary fire among rubbish and wooden pallets.
“Two fire appliances from Kingsway East attended.
“The fire was put out by 9.36pm using a hose reel jet. No further specialist equipment was required.”
It is understood damage was kept to a minimum and no one was injured in the blaze.
A spokesman for Police Scotland said the fire was reported to them by a member of the public who had spotted the flames from a distance.
He added: “Scottish Fire and Rescue reported there is nothing to suggest the fire had been started deliberately.”
