Major fire in industrial estate in Muir of Ord

Fire crews have extinguished a blaze which damaged a food company's premises in an industrial estate in a Highlands village.

The fire broke out shortly before 08:00 at Tarradale Game Dealers on the Wyndhill Industrial Estate in Muir of Ord.

Five fire appliances, a high level platform and water carrier were involved in extinguishing the blaze.

Paramedics treated one person for the effects of heat and smoke inhalation.

Fire appliances from Inverness, Dingwall and Beauly have been involved.

Police Scotland said the fire was not being treated as suspicious.

It is the second major incident in Muir of Ord this year.

On Wednesday, a leak from a damaged gas main led to roads and a railway through the village being closed.

For their safety, children at the local primary school were also kept in the school and not allowed home.
