Traffic along Falkirk’s busy Grahams Road came to a standstill following a fire.

The blaze broke out just after 4pm yesterday in a first floor flat above the shops across from the traffic lights at the junction for Dalderse Avenue.

Two fire crews using breathing apparatus and two hose reels brought the fire under control quickly by 4.36pm according the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service.

Police were in attendance directing traffic, which was backed up both ways along the main route.
