Fire crews from Auchterarder, Crieff and Perth attended a garage fire in the Feus area of Auchterarder this morning.
The garage adjacent to a property in the Feus has been there for many years and had a variety of items stored, including some cannisters. It is these cannisters which gave rise to concerns for local resident’s safety, some of whom were evacuated from nearby properties.
The fire was brought under control in the early hours of this morning with the three crews working together to ensure the safety of all concerned.
Thankfully no one was hurt or injured and by 9am this morning the fire crews were mostly stood down with a final machine from Perth being the last to leave.
