Girl aged 13 months flown to Glasgow hospital after house fire in Highlands
A 13-month-old girl has been flown to hospital in Glasgow after being rescued from a house fire in the Highlands.
Firefighters were called to a report of the blaze at MacDonald Drive in Lossiemouth, Moray, at around 3.45am on Thursday.
The toddler was one of three people in the house who were all initially taken to Dr Gray’s Hospital in Elgin for assessment.
A 35-year-old man was taken by road ambulance to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and a woman, 31, was also expected to be transferred there later on Thursday.
They are all described as being in a serious condition.
Detective Inspector Norman Stevenson said: “Our enquiries are at an early stage in establishing what caused the fire.
“A joint investigation by ourselves and the fire service is due to take place today, following a structural survey.
“The three occupants of the house are all in a serious condition and our thoughts are with them and their family at this time.
“MacDonald Drive, between St Margarets Crescent and Rinnes Drive, is currently closed to allow access for emergency services vehicles.
“The local community is thanked for their patience and understanding whilst we and partner agencies carry out our enquiries.”
The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service (SFRS) said six fire engines and other support appliances attended the incident.
A neighbouring property was also evacuated as a precaution.
