Article: 52/1716

The Scottish Environmental Incident Surveillance System (SEISS) recorded the following incidents in the past week:

  • The BBC reported firefighters tackled a large blaze in a remote hillside location in Aberdeenshire. Emergency services were called to the hill about two miles from Glen Tanar House in Aboyne, at about 18:05 on 26 April 2018. A Scottish Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said crews had difficulty reaching the incident due to its remote location, and added that firefighters ceased operations once darkness fell for safety reasons. There were no reports of any casualties.
