Fourteen rescued from Stirling flats blaze

Fourteen people have been rescued by firefighters from a three-storey building in Stirling after a fire broke out in a communal stair.

Crews were called to Cowane Street at 19:30 on Saturday and rescued four people from the first floor of the building using a ladder.

Another 10 people were led to safety from the second floor.

A fire service spokesman said the fire was in a bin store but the smoke had affected a number of properties.
