Police have confirmed an investigation has been launched following a huge fire in Dundee.
The Hilltown Indoor Market and neighbouring Fit4Less on Main Street, Hilltown was left in ruin after being engulfed in flames.
The fire was initially reported around 6.15pm but firefighters worked for hours to bring it under control with a crew remaining on the scene this morning to ensure there were no hotspots.
Police have now launched a joint probe with the fire service into the cause of the blaze.
Inspector Cath Lannen of Police Scotland said: “Inquiries are at an early stage and we will work jointly with Scottish Fire and Rescue Service to establish the cause of the fire.
“The building has been extensively damaged.
“There are road closures still in place at Caldrum Street and Thistle Street and I would like to thank motorists for their patience whilst this is ongoing.
“I would appeal to anyone who was in the area around the time of the fire to come forward to Police Scotland and contact us on 101 or or Crimestoppers Scotland anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
