Firefighters were scrambled to an industrial unit in Dundee after a blaze broke out in the early hours of the morning.
Two units were initially sent to the Martin Plant Hire building on Baird Avenue in Dryburgh Industrial Estate, but when they realised the fire was worse than first feared, another appliance was sent to help.
The flames were extinguished just after 2am before firefighters checked for any remaining hotspots on a thermal imaging camera and then used a machine to ventilate smoke from the building.
A spokesman for Martin Plant Hire said it was a small fire and they hoped to be open later today.
“There was a small fire last night and we are currently investigating the cause. It is business as usual as the damage to equipment and the building is limited,” he added.
A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said: “We had a fire in Dundee last night at Baird Avenue in an industrial unit.
“We received the call at 1.07am and we sent two appliances from Macalpine Road. At 1.20am we then released an extra appliance from Blackness Road.
“It was a single storey building measuring 20 metres by 30 metres.
“We had to gain access to the building and used four breathing apparatus and one jet.
“By 2.09am the fire had been extinguished and we used a thermal image camera and ventilated the building until 2.36am.”
The spokesman for Martin Plant Hire said: “It was a small fire and no one was hurt.
“We’re hoping to be opening again later today, we’re just cleaning up at the moment.”
