Three people have been rescued by firefighters after a blaze broke out at a house.

Crews were alerted to the fire at Cedar Street in Dunbar, East Lothian, shortly after 7pm on Sunday.

Operations control sent "a number of fire engines" to the incident and the flames have been extinguished.

A spokeswoman for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said: "Firefighters rescued three casualties from the property and transferred them into the care of the Scottish Ambulance Service."

Their conditions are not known.

Meanwhile, on the other side of the country, fire crews were called to reports of a fire at a lodge on the A82 near Balloch, West Dunbartonshire.

Two appliances were sent to put out the small fire, a spokeswoman said.

She said one male casualty was treated at the scene by ambulance staff but did not have to go to hospital.
