Firefighters have rescued five people from a blaze at a block of flats in Dalmuir, West Dunbartonshire.

Crews were called to the fire at the four-storey block in Ottawa Crescent at about 17:40 on Thursday.

A woman, two children and two men were rescued from the upper-floors and given care until paramedics arrived.

The men were treated in hospital for the effects of smoke inhalation. The woman and children were refereed for precautionary check-ups.

After the blaze was extinguished, residents were able to return to six of the building's eight flats.

The fire service and Police Scotland are conducting a joint investigation into the cause of the blaze.
