Firefighter in Lochaber hill blaze probe

A retained firefighter is at the centre of an investigation into a moorland blaze in Lochaber, the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service has confirmed.

The 39-year-old man was arrested last week following a hill fire in Glen Tarbert, near Strontian, on 1 April.

The man was expected to appear from custody at Fort William Sheriff Court on Monday.

However, he was released while the local procurator fiscal considers a police report on the cause of the fire.
