Fire crews tackle large forest fire in Stirlingshire

Fire crews are dealing with a large forest fire in Stirlingshire.

About 25 firefighters, including crews from across Stirlingshire and the specialist wildfire forest unit from Dunblane, were alerted after machinery and timber caught fire at about 07:00.

The flames spread across half an acre of land between Crianlarich and Killin.

No-one has been hurt in the fire, but the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service is expected to remain at the scene for some time.
