Black Isle farm steading fire closes school

A school was closed as a precaution as firefighters tackled a blaze at a nearby farm.

Police were preparing to evacuate properties close to the fire at a steading at Wester Craiglands in the Black Isle.

But firefighters, wearing breathing apparatus because of the smoke, extinguished the blaze.

A school at Raddery was shut. It is believed the farm building contained fertiliser.
