Road closed after straw shed fire at Perthshire farm

Fire crews battled a blaze in 500 tonnes of straw bales which forced the closure of a Perthshire road.

The B950 was closed in both directions between the A93 at Blacklunans and the A924 due to smoke from the fire at Wester Bleaton Farm in Kirkmichael.

Fire crews were alerted at about 06:00 and arrived to find a shed containing 500 tonnes of straw well alight.

Firefighters got the flames under control by 08:00, but remained in place to damp down.
