However, several locals living in the area reported losing their water supply around the time of the fire.

At 10.20pm, Scottish Water informed customers about the issue, and wrote: “The Fire Service are currently using hydrants to tackle a fire in the area which is affecting customers water supplies in the surrounding areas.

“As the hydrants are in use, this is causing low pressure and discoloured water to the surrounding streets”.

However, affected homes have now regained a normal water supply.

A spokesperson for SFRS said: “Crews left the scene after ensuring the area was made safe.”
