Probe into three-storey house fire in Edinburgh

A investigation has been launched into an Edinburgh house blaze which took dozens of firefighters about five hours to extinguish.

At least 45 firefighters tackled the blaze at North Bughtlin Gate after being called at 01:10.

Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue Service said the three-storey terraced house was empty when they arrived.

The house was well alight so they evacuated the houses on either side of the home. Nobody was hurt.
