A BLAZE broke out at a historic Midlothian mansion yesterday.
Four fire engines rushed to Arniston House, in Gorebridge, at around 2pm.
A bin had caught fire and flames spread to a boiler room at the Palladian-style mansion house.
Fire crews dealt with the blaze and remained at the scene for around an hour. No-one required treatment.
The mansion was the birthplace of Henry Viscount Melville and two Lord Presidents of the Court of Session.
