Firefighters have been battling a blaze at a home in East Lothian for four hours.

Four fire crews are in attendance at a two-storey building in Burnside, Prestonpans.

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service received a call at 5.27pm with three crews rushing to the scene.

No people have been harmed or injured as a result of the house fire.

A fourth appliance arrived at the scene to assist while a height appliance is also present.

High pressure hose reels and a covering jet have been used to help control the blaze.

The building remains on fire at this stage - almost four hours after the 999 call was made.
