A former Fraserburgh hotel had to be evacuated last night after a fire broke out on the premises.

Nearly 20 firefighters fought the blaze at the former Station Hotel on Seaforth Street after it broke out around 9 pm last night.

There were no injuries as three Scottish Fire and Rescue vehicles tended to the blaze at the premises.

The building, currently called Britton Lodge, is now used as flats.

There is believed to be significant damage to the interior of the building and an investigation into the incident will be carried out by Scottish Fire and Rescue.

The three fire vehicles, two from Fraserburgh and one from Peterhead, left the scene at around midnight last night.
