Firefighters tackled a blaze at a Skye hotel in the early hours of the morning (Thursday 3 January.)

The fire crews were sent to the Dunorin House Hotel just before 11:20pm yesterday (Wednesday 2 January.)

Members of the fire brigade had to force entry to the building and used two hose reel jets to tackle the blaze.

A spokesman for the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service told Skye Times Online: “The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service was alerted at 11.18pm on Wednesday, January 2 to reports of a fire within a hotel on the Isle of Skye.

“Operations Control mobilised four fire engines to the Dunorin House Hotel, where crews were met by a fire within a kitchen.

“Firefighters extinguished the fire and ensured the area was made safe before leaving the scene.

“There were no casualties.”

A spokesperson for Police Scotland told Skye Times Online that they were informed of the fire shortly before 11:30pm last night and assisted the Scottish Fire & Rescue Service.

The fire continued burning past 3am, when crews eventually left the scene.
