Firefighters tackled a late night blaze at a tower block in Falkirk shortly before midnight on Monday.

Four appliances from stations in Falkirk and Larbert raced to Maxwell Tower in Callendar Park after the alarm was raised at around 11.55 p.m.

Crews used breathing equipment to reach the outbreak on the 14th floor and remove a tenant who was later taken to Forth Valley Royal Hospital in Larbert for treatment.

The cause of the outbreak is being investigated by the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service.
